The film retells the dramatic story of Jerzy Popieluszko, the young priest in 1980s Poland who used his sermons to attack the lies spread by the government and publicised the hardships suffered by the people, oppressed by martial law and the menacing presence of tanks in the streets. Closely linked with the workers' movement and the Solidarnosc trade unions, Father Popieluszko was kidnapped, tortured and murdered by the Soviet secret services. However his sacrifice and death seemed to be necessary for the people of Poland, who from that point on, lost their fear of fighting for their freedom.
