Warsaw, 1983. Poland is shaken by the case of Grzegorz Przemyk – a high school student beaten to death by militia. Based on true events, the film follows the story of Jurek who is the only witness of the beating and as a result becomes an overnight number one enemy of the state. The oppressive regime used its whole apparatus – the secret service, militia, the 10 media and the courts – to squeeze Jurek and other people close to the case, including his parents and Przemyk’s mother, Barbara.
