Death Sentence is a standard honor-before-love drama set in 1943 Poland. Wojciech Wysocki plays a member of an underground "hit squad", dedicated to ferreting out and liquidating Nazi sympathizers. Wysocki undergoes a conflict of interest when he falls in love with singer Doris Kuntsmann, the mistress of a German officer. Eventually he casts his full lot with the Cause and kills his beloved. Death Sentence was originally released in Poland in 1981 as Wyrok Smierci.
