In this award-winning drama set in the wake of World War II, an American soldier played by Scott Wilson (In Cold Blood, Shiloh) forms a delicate friendship with a war widow (Maja Komorowska) amid the devastation of 1946 Poland. In spite of the language barrier, painful memories of their past, and the many cultural divisions that separate them, Norman and Emilia dare to steal a moment of happiness in the shadow of misery.
