    • Janusz Konorski was an upper class boy living a life of wealth and privilege in one of the most luxurious homes in Warsaw when the Nazi invasion turned his world upsidedown. As he learns of his Jewish bloodline he is forced into hiding to escape the coming extermination.

      In his new life of survival Janusz encounters both incredible kindness and evils beyond his understanding, setting into motion his transformation from middle-class darling into a fighter struggling with great hardships and unaffordable fears. The rites of passage in this new world are steep: death, love and murder in defence of another forge Janusz into the archetypal hero, a knight among men.
