In master Polish filmmaker Andrej Wajda’s most important and highly anticipated new film, a story of Polish officers murdered by the NKVD in KatyÅ„ during World War II. It is a picture of women unaware of the crime, who were waiting for their husbands, fathers, sons, and brothers; an uncompromising reckoning with the lie of the communist powers, that was to order Poland to forget those who were killed by Stalin’s secret police. It is a film about the invincible struggle for memory and truth.
