A dramatization of one man's rescue of Jewish refugees in the Nazi-occupied Polish city of Lvov. Set in Lvov in 1943, and based on a true story of Polish sewer worker Leopold Socha and the fateful encounter that changes his life.

He makes up his mind and finally risks his own life for those refugees...
