Based in truth, this foreign language Oscar nominee tells a powerful story of Leopold Socha, a petty thief and Polish sewer inspector who, for 14 months until WW2 ended, hid from the authorities a group of Jews in the damp and dark underground pipesâ€¦for a significant price; he intends to turn them in to the Nazis once their money runs out. But when that time does come, he finds he canâ€™t do it and risks the lives of himself and of his family. Three-time Oscar nominated filmmaker Agnieszka Holland (Europa Europa, Angry Harvest) has made a simultaneously astonishing, harrowing, and inspiring film.
