10 years ago a plane with the Polish President and 95 VIPs on board crashed just outside a Russian airport. The dramatic events of the first few minutes right after the tragedy are retold by special services officers, diplomats and pilots of another Polish plane, which landed at the Russian airport 1.5 hours earlier.
Due to contradictory information regarding the course of events and causes of the disaster, the film relies solely on reliable sources, revealing materials from the Prosecutor’s Office and Ministry of National Defense, never previously shown to the public. In the course of a journalistic investigation the filmmaker was able to uncover documents and footage which are sensational in nature and reveal a surprising course of events.
For many of them on board it was a journey of a lifetime, towards the mass graves of their relatives sought for generations, secretly murdered by Stalin during World War II. Will the silence regarding a crime from 70 years ago now consume them?
If you want to live in a safe world, you have to face the truth…
