Janek’s story begins in post second war Poland and follows him as a young adult who rebels against Moscow’s oppression and escapes from his Communist-controlled homeland. With freedom for himself in hand, Janek explores all the options for getting his wife out from under communist control, too. As the tension between the East and West escalates, Moscow fortifies the border around communist bloc countries to magnify their control, which increases Janek’s difficulty in getting his wife to join him in the West. In a last desperate attempt Janek crosses back into the Communist Bloc, risking his freedom, and even his life, to free his beloved Kasia.
