The movie presents the recollections of women who used to be prisoners in Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp and what young contemporary Poles think about those dramatic times. Even though it’s been 65 years, for the main characters of the film the memories of the time when they suffered from hunger and above all unbelievable degradation are still painful. The term ‘former prisoners’ is not entirely right. Despite regaining freedom and the time that passed by, the cruelty of the camps was so great that these women have remained prisoners in some way. It is an accumulated experience that is not so easy to get rid of.
