A film adaptation of an epic poem written in 1834 by Adam Mickiewicz, one of the most outstanding representatives of Romanticism in Poland. Having spent many years in exile, the poet presents a vision of a dying world of nobility in a poem filled with lyricism and longing for the homeland of his childhood. He shows the image of the contemporaneous Poland and Poles. A conflict between two families serves as a backdrop for discussion on Polish national unity issues and the struggle for independence. Andrzej Wajda adapted one of the most important national works of literature and managed to retain the literary form and poetically presented old customs and traditions.
