The Second World War is underway

The new rebellion is rising.

In summer 1944, the Soviet army is approaching Warsaw.

This raises hopes for the defeat of Germany.

Warsaw is preparing for the uprising.

Open up.

Hold on.

Stop it,

we'll get this over with faster.

- Give him a break, please.

- I have to do this.

Leave him alone.


At three.

- One, two... three.

- You're stupid!

Madam, it's over.

My dearest Lady Macbeth,

this show is really poor...

In fact it's mediocre.


What are you doing up so early?

Take this to 'The Actresses'

in Mazowiecka Street.

Tell them it's for Ariadna...


Don't stop, get moving!

Morning, boss!


- Women! Devils incarnate!

- Right!

- Will you spare a fiver, boss...?

- I have nothing, chief.

Leave him alone.

We'll lose her.

Citizens of Warsaw!

All acts of disobedience against

the German authorities

will be punished.

That's why today we will execute

another 40 people

who were recently pardoned.

Get moving!

Which crates stay,

which ones go?

Get to work, Stefan!

- Watch what you're doing!

- These go, those stay.

So you want to be the chairman?

That's right, your deputy!

- He wants to be the chairman!

- Girls!

Young man! Come here!

Put these in the car.

- In the car.

- I don't understand.

I'm sorry, sir!

The boy probably

didn't understand you.

Get this out of here.

Your men aren't

overexerting themselves.

He's new.

What a great day today!

Great days are long gone.

Don't you dare scratch anything!


Is he legally employed?

They're all legal at my factory.

You hire some pretty defiant characters.

Your papers.

Just look at that expression on his face!

Where do you pigs get

all that hostility?

You understand

every single word I say, don't you?

Is this how much you want us

to leave your city?

No problem.

It's just that when we go,

we'll be replaced by

communists from Russia.

And then you'll beg us to come back.

You can always count on me, miss.


- Dad!

- When are you finishing?

- I'm coming!

- We're waiting and waiting.

I don't know where you got it

and what it's for.

I'm not going to inform on you

but I don't want to see you again.

Take your rubbish and get out.

We'll take care of it.

Don't try to play hero.

We'll get you new papers and a job.

We'll help you out.

I'll manage, thanks.

- How exactly will you do that?

- Don't worry.

Without papers they'll send you

to a labour camp in Germany.

- Maybe.

- I know it's my fault.

Ha, I've seen everything!

There's nothing to see...

We were just...

'We were just'!

And then suddenly there's kids.

- Have you seen them?

- Keep on playing!

- Jasio!

- Don't tell your mum anything.

Leave for work as usual.


Thank you.

So I'm walking and a

few thugs come up

to steal my wallet.

And one of them had a knife.

Hence the cut.

Can I have a cut like that?


- Really? Like this?

- Yes!

Here you go.

The other cheek.

- How do I look?

- Like me.


- Get up.


Mum, thugs've cut Stefan's cheek!

Luckily just the cheek.

Mum, you've ruined my tower!

Put that on.

Don't come round here again,

stop bothering people!

Why don't you cut that out

or you'll lose face!

Spare a fiver, boss?


- So, how's things?

- Here I am! Where are we going?

Wow, how direct!

On a trip!

- Look where you're going, you idiot!

- At one desk!

- The wimp kept taking my stuff!
