Warsaw – March 1968. Hania, a young Jewish theatre student, meets and falls madly in love with Janek as the city is engulfed in protests against the authoritarian regime’s crackdown on civil liberties and anti-Semitic policies in Communist-era Poland. While the young lovers are uninterested in politics, they soon find themselves unable to avoid it when Hania’s parents lose their respective jobs due to the anti-Semitic purge and are forced to emigrate. Hania wants to stay in Poland with Janek, but after participating in a protest rally at the university, events soon spiral out of control. History, politics and romance collide in this stirring coming-of-age love story as the young couple is forced to choose between love, family and freedom.
