A small village in the south-western part of Volhynia, populated by Ukrainians, Poles and Jews. Despite being in love with a Ukrainian boy from the same village, Polish girl named Zosia is forced into marrying a wealthy widower. The life of the village is altered, first by the Soviet occupation and nearly two years later by the German attack on the USSR. The following year sees the hunt and brutal killings of Jews. Meanwhile, although not supported by the Germans, the Ukrainian aspirations to establish a sovereign country are constantly rising. The tension between the Polish and Ukrainian neighbours increases, as well. In the summer of 1943, there’s an outbreak of murders and cruelty. Amongst this sea of hatred Zosia’s trying to save her children.
