Twin brothers, Rysiek and Stefan live in an orphanage run by
nuns. The orphanage is situated in a small Silesian town, where the
Poles and the Germans live next to one another. The boys are unlucky to
grow up in one of the worst periods in the history of the place - during
the Third Reich.
They will soon be parted only to meet again in extremely unpleasant circumstances a dozen or so years later.
