It is a true story of one family living on the borderlands of what once was Poland and disconnected forever by a brutal act of Soviet terror. It is a docudrama of an acclaimed documentary-maker Liliana Komorowska in collaboration with Diana Skaya. It is also the untold story of Adam Bandrowski, who is man from the Polish borderlands, as seen through the eyes of his three-year-old daughter Alina. He is an innocent victim of one of many acts of genocide carried during Stalin’s Great Purge. More than 100 000 Poles who were citizens of the USSR were executed in hiding. 77 years later, Alina Bandrowska breaks the silence about the Vinnytsia Massacre with her poem “To my Father”. Settled in the memory of the child, there are poetic images of her family’s life suddenly interrupted with scenes of the arrest, interrogation, and execution of her father in 1938. The film pays homage to all the victims of the Vinnytsia Massacre.
