  • (Directed by Andrzej Wajda; with Teresa Izewska, Tadeusz Janczar) September, 1944. The advancing German army completes its destruction of Warsaw. Within the ruins of the devastated city a tired group of Polish soldiers and patriots attempt to flee the murderous Nazi grasp. But their only hope for escape lies in the city's maze of filthy underground sewers. And so, descending into the waist-deep, refuse-filled waters, they begin a journey to uncertain freedom.
