1944. Warsaw is in flames, destroyed by the Nazis during the uprising. When Warsaw’s Old Town is reduced to rubble under German bombs, Marek, poet and dreamer, sets off alone through the labyrinth of underground cellars and tunnels for the city centre, where his father should be. He falls madly in love with Irena, a beautiful, blonde Volksdeutsch woman. She is trying to find her son, who was fighting in the uprising as a boy scout.
