This Polish caper comedy stars Marek Kondrat, Bogulsaw Linda, Wiktor Zborowski and others. It takes place around 20 years after the end of the First World War, as WWII is just heating up. As the second massive global conflict commences, military deserters begin streaming back into Poland. The Polish Underground needs to cover the cost of a huge delivery of weapons, and learns that gold is being stashed by the Nazis in an ex-Polish bank. To facilitate the retrieval of this gold, the Underground solicits the services of former WWI soldier Kania and his friends - men who are now scattered from one end of Europe to the other.
