Story

In the late 1960s, the military moves Russian pilot Yuri and his beautiful wife Vera to the town of Legnica, headquarters for the Soviet Army in Poland. While fraternizing between the Russian occupiers and local Poles is strictly controlled, Vera’s enchanting performance in a singing contest ignites a deep passion in Polish lieutenant Michal and the two must choose between loyalty and love. Seeking truth and redemption in the past, Yuri and his daughter return to Legnica 30 years later.
