Please see below a short synopsis of the film:

The depiction of the life of Nobel Peace Prize winner and founder of Poland's Solidarity movement, Lech Walesa, as events in the 1970s lead to a peaceful revolution. Andrzej Wajda's feature focuses on Lech Wałęsa, particularly the first 20 years of his work. The film begins with events that took place in the 1970s, and ends with the speech Lech Wałęsamade in the US Congress in 1989. Wajda attempts to capture the essence of the transformation of simple common working man into a charismatic leader who managed to liberate dreams of freedom that rested in the hearts of millions, and gave the spark for major changes in society. 
Genre: Drama
Production: Poland (with English subtitles)
Directed by: Andrzej Wajda
