SYNOPSIS:

Seven women, seven victims of the system and the events of December of 1981 whose friendship was born in extreme circumstances. Ewa, Jola, Marylka, Ela, Ania, Wiesia and Zosia. All arrested for possesion and distribution of the "Solidarity" fliers, although the conviction was justified as an attempt to overthrow the PRL's system. Harsh sentences that were also supposed to be examples for others. Ela had gotten a year-and-a-half, Ania three, Marylka three-and-a-half, Jola four years suspended for two, Wiesia and Zosia both five, and Ewa ten. A year more than what the prosecutor had demanded. They all had gotten out earlier, but the trauma of those days had scarred them for life, and the absurdity of living in the communism-tormented country had forced nearly all of them to immigrate, so their children could grow up in the absolute peace.
