Based on a true story from the mid-1980s, this moving drama is one of the most important Polish films on migration and communism. Indoctrinated by their own parents, two Polish boys, a teenager and his little brother, are so determined to escape communist Poland that they hide under a truck. They believe they are being taken into Sweden to only realize later on they have found themselves in Denmark.
