Basia is a young nurse and she falls in love with Stefan Kowalski, who becomes one of the major figures in a net of underground fighters. He helps Jewish families to survive in Warsaw occupied by the Germans during WWII. They marry and together they save as many people as possible. Over 50 years later in contemporary Warsaw, Barbara gets the Righteous among the Nations medal from the Ambassador of Israel but insists on going to Jerusalem for the formal ceremony in spite of concerns of her son who worries about her health. Both time periods, which means WWII and nowadays, are put together. It is due to the fact that they mingle in Barbara’s remembrances and reflections of people, history and decency. Gradually, they unveil complex bonds between the past and the present and show that the picture of a hero presented in history books and the media has frequently an additional, unexpected dimension.
