Everyday life in the German occupied Warsaw in the midst of the WW2 runs between efforts to find a job and therefore – something to eat, and the efforts to avoid “seizures” carried on regularly by the German horrifying special forces – Gestapo on the streets. One of the days takes away a Jewish woman, whose 8-year-old daughter accidentally manages to avoid the seizure, but now – left completely alone – hides in the nearby church, hungry and frozen almost to death. It is Joanna, an ordinary middle-class woman waiting for her husband to return home for over four years now, who sees the girl.
She feels a natural, strong urge to help, but doesn’t know anyone of the underground opposition circles, who would be able to secure the safe home for the Jewish child. The gravest danger hangs over everyone involved as there is the death penalty for hiding a Jewish person.
