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. When Socha encounters a group of Jews trying to escape the threatened liquidation of the ghetto by hiding in the cramped, rat-infested sewers, they offer him money to guide them to a secret spot and provide them with food. He makes up his mind and finally risks his own life for those refugees...
