The story of a Frenchman, Jacky Challot, shows how much our life depends on pure coincidence. If, in the 1980s, a 20-something labour office worker in Paris had not got involved in supporting the "Solidarity" movement, he wouldn't have had the adventure of his life, wouldn't have experienced a Polish prison, and wouldn't have become a hero whose release was demanded by the whole of France. Many years later, Jacky Challot, who lives in Bayonne with his wife, returns to Poland and visits the places where he worked and met with "Solidarity" activists. He even visits the prison.
