When Adam a Polish Home Army Ex-serviceman carries his dearest friend and brother in arms Mietek to his last destination, he remembers his own youthful naivety and ignorance. The first time an eighteen year old Adam meets Mietek, a Polish Army veteran returned from POW camp, he asks the ex-soldier to rejoin the fight against the German occupant in WW II. Facing a horrific incident changing their life, both find themselves risking the most precious thing to lose – their life – for the most precious thing another human being can offer – deep and true respect.
