Cast Arkadiusz Walesiak (Major Jan Henryk Zychon)
When in 1928 Jan Żychoń took over the head of the intelligence post in the Free City of Danzig, he was only 26 years old. Despite his young age, he was already an experienced, long-term intelligence worker. Żychoń’s work was interrupted in 1944 by a military trial to prove his lack of loyalty to the country and cooperation with the Abwehr. And all that happened in time when U.S. Intelligence considered him as one of the best specialists in the world. A dramatic story of great Polish hero.
