It’s 1901. After a daring escape from a psychiatric hospital Saint Petersburg, Józef Piłsudski once again becomes the leader of the underground independence movement in Poland. Piłsudski is unyielding on the battlefield, but in his private life he surrenders to passion, torn between the two women of his life: his wife and his lover.
Uncertain years are coming, marked by revolutionary events, violence and betrayal. Pilsudski must find a way to maneuver on the boggy ground – between the conservative passivity of the Polish Socialist Party and the aggression against the invaders, resulting in retaliation. The year 1914 is coming, and the chance for restoring an independent country, independent Poland, is now or never.
