    • Synopsis
    • “Warsaw44” is a story of young Varsovians full of life and passion. They live their lives as if each day was to be their last. It’s not, however, due to their bravado or recklessness – this attitude is a natural thing considering the reality they face.

      We get to know the movie’s main characters shortly before the Uprising breaks out. They see their involvement in the underground movement not only as a patriotic duty, but also as an adventure, an opportunity to brag to their peers and impress girls. They flirt, show off and make plans during their underground training, not realising the approaching summer will prove to be the hardest test of their lives. What they don’t know is that History has something in store for them…

      Joined by friendship, the characters of “Warsaw44” form one of the most courageous detachments in the Uprising. They witness sacrifice and heroism, but also cruelty, betrayal and murder. They learn about love and discover what hate feels like. History teaches them a bloody and brutal lesson in growing up.
