A true story of murder, deportation and shocking cover-up

In an old safe, a man discovers his grandmother’s memoirs, old photos of an army officer and a mysterious postcard linked to a concealed crime; the Katyn Forest massacre of 22,000 Polish officers, police and other leaders. Weaving interviews with bold animation, this film explores the collision of truth, justice and memory in a family tragedy.

The cover-up of the Katyn massacre is still rarely acknowledged. Over a million people (including the Katyn victims’ families) were deported from Poland to Siberia by the Soviets in 1940-1941 and the U.S. and Great Britain took an active role in covering it up. Many were dead within a year. Those who managed to survive and leave the Soviet Union were told to keep quiet about what happened.

This is their story.

Academy-award winner Jan A.P. Kaczmarek partnered with filmmaker Piotr Uzarowicz to create a moving story about a family caught in the crossfire of the Soviets and Nazis and the lifelong repercussions that followed.
