“The Dark and Silent Ones” is a fictionalized documentary featuring the fascinating tale of the Polish soldiers and parachutists, who after the September 1939 defeat managed to get to England and join the elite special unit – the prototype of the renowned Detachment GROM (Polish Special Operation Forces). They were then paradropped over occupied Poland where they undertook risky missions and fought in the Warsaw Uprising. The comments and reflections of the survivors are interspersed with the unique documentary clips as well as with reconstructed and staged scenes.
