A story of two boys from Poland and Hungary, Romek Strzalkowski and Peter Mansfeld, who found themselves in the turmoil of the dramatic 1956 events taking place in two countries of Central Europe. They are both legendary figures of Poznan '56 and Budapest '56. 13-year-old Romek was the youngest victim of the first workers' rebellion against communist authorities in Poland. We get to know what the communist regime was capable of. Because of the cruelty of his oppressors, Peter's death took 13 minutes.
