This story takes place in Nazi occupied Warsaw in 1944. Young Poles reach adulthood under brutal occupation, but remain hungry for life, passionate and impatient. They live as if every day were their last, not because they’re reckless, but because when death lurks around every corner, it’s the only way to live.
