This documentary shows the transformation of Poland and Polish citizens. The changes took place in a short period of time between the end of 1988 and the beginning of 1990. The original footage is accompanied by diaries written by Poles who observed and documented the transformation. This material makes the documentary more authentic than interviews made years later and enables viewers to follow the events as they were seen by its participants. The documentary was produced under the auspices of the President of Poland Bronisław Komorowski and it is directly connected with the celebration of the Polish legislative election in 1989.
