SYNOPSIS:

A dramatic story about filial love. During the World War II Alojzy Lysko's father was forced into the Wehrmacht Army. As many as 300 thousand were coerced into the German uniform from the region of the Polish Silesia. Some were fortunate enough to cross the Western front and join the Polish Army. Able to perish in a Polish uniform, history remembered them with gratitude. Those who did not have the same luck, like Lysko, perished on the Eastern front or came back mutilated from Russian captivity only to be forgotten. Today, a well know activist from Silesia, Alojzy Lysko, collects narratives from these forgotten soldiers with the hope of getting closer to his father. On the boundless Ukrainian steppe he finds his father's grave...
