This documentary shows dramatic events that took place in Poland and their outcome which was so significant that it inspired an American screenwriter to share the story with the rest of the world. It is a story of the Blessed Father Jerzy Popiełuszko who was a courageous chaplain of the Solidarity movement in Poland in the early 1980s. His strong faith, conviction and courage mobilized the nation to stand against the communist regime. He paid the highest price for fighting for freedom and human rights as he was murdered in 1984 by the communist government. Later his heroism and devotion were appreciated by the whole nation. He was beatified on June 6, 2010 in Warsaw and is expected to be canonized. The documentary gives an insight into Popiełuszko’s life and work as it contains a lot of archive footage as well as interviews with people who had the opportunity to meet him personally. It is also a kind of a noble fairytale that could be told by parents to children. It is a story about truth, freedom and courage. The documentary is narrated by Martin Sheen.
