  • Description:

    Agnieszka Holland, director (144 min., 2011)

    Based on the true story of a sewer worker in Lvov, a Nazi-occupied city in Poland, who hides a group of Jews in the labyrinth of the town’s sewers. What starts out as a cynical business arrangement turns into something very unexpected, an unlikely alliance and an awakening of conscience. This is an extraordinary story of survival as these men, women, and children try to outwit certain death during 14 months of ever-increasing danger.
