SYNOPSIS:

A documentary about Jan Krok-Paszkowski (1925 - 2007), a writer, a journalist, and a political activist during one of the most difficult post-war times in the communist Poland. Man-orchestra whose radio voice was even recognized by the late pope, John Paul II. During WW II Krok-Paszkowski fought in the Warsaw Uprising, and after the war he was imprisoned by the UB. After immigrating to the free West in the early 1950's his political journalist's journey had begun as he started working for the Radio Free Europe, in Munich, Western Germany, and later in the Polish Section of the BBC Radio Station in London. "To the free world" is a collection of many voices, including Paszkowski's RFE and BBC's coworkers, his wife and children, telling the story of a man who, despite being threatened by the Polish then-goverment wanting to enlist him as their spy, never succumberd and never quit his mission of telling the truth on the radio waves.
