European Film Showcase


  • Description
  • Based on a true story of love and bravery in war-ravaged Europe,

    this heart-wrenching film was shot entirely in Poland. It skillfully

    combines the intensity of combat with the joy and heartache of

    young romance.

    A headstrong soldier is captured and sent to a prisoner-of-war

    camp in Poland. Young and fearless, he escapes again and again,

    only to be recaptured each time. A meeting with a beautiful

    Polish girl leads to love, but their happiness is overshadowed by

    the turmoil of war.
