Wojciech Wiktorowski was born in Warsaw in 1954 and has been interested in cinematography since his teenage years. Professionally, he worked, among other things, as a journalist at Polish Television and a contributor to the magazine Ekspres Reporterów, and was the author of many reports and documentaries devoted to protecting people from toxic factors in the environment and in social life. In addition to film, Wojciech’s great passion was crime novels. He realized his love for this genre as the author of the Ewa Calls 007 series: the books On the Edge of the Low Pressure Area (1985) and Milk Action (1986), as well as The Ghosts of Chernobyl (2011). 

The author of some of the films is also Wojciech’s father, Roman Wiktorowski, who worked as a surgeon in Morocco since 1965. 

An account of a trip by Irena, Roman’s wife, with her children Ewa and Wojciech to Morocco in the late 1960s. The family visited the man regularly, and Wojciech spent vacations with his dad. As usual, the first stop on the trip was Paris, from which Irena and her children flew on to Morocco. During a short visit to the city, the Wiktorowskis visit a viewpoint with fountains, from which they admire the Eiffel Tower. After reaching Morocco and meeting Roman, the whole family relaxes on the beach, bathes in the pool at the Anfa Plages hotel in Casablanca, and visits Rabat, Marrakech and Meknes. One of the shots also shows a snake fight. During their trip to Poland, Irena, Wojciech and Ewa again fly through Paris, where they walk along the Champs Elysees, along the banks of the Seine with its distinctive booths of buccaneers and visit the Louvre.
