REPRESENTED BY KFF

Poland, 1982, the politically heated days of communist martial law. Two coal miner brothers react differently to the oppressive police state. While Tadek (Tomasz Schuchardt) prefers to retreat into neutrality, Janek (Stanisław Linowski) chooses active engagement in the democratic underground. When Janek asks Tadek to store some anti-government leaflets on the second anniversary of Solidarity’s 1980 strikes, he triggers a spiral of events that will have everyone’s allegiences and characters severely tested.
