Ignacy Karpowicz. Sonka.
"The location is former Polish "kresy", a territory of over half a century of bloody mysteries and dramatic controversies. Here, a young director, a favorite of the metropolitan public accidentally comes across a story that may become his greatest success – or the most fatal defeat. The fate of a girl, who in a village occupied by the Nazi army falls in love with an occupier soldier, and her family makes him recall his own tragedy – the neglected language, the lost ground. The past comes to life in the present, suddenly making us face the trials to which we far not always turn up ready..."
