Cold War (Zimna wojna)
Two completely different and possibly non-identical characters fall into an exciting love story under very bad conditions. Both live a Cold War love story in the 1950s in Poland, Paris and Berlin. This emotional story may turn into a different situation at an impossible time and in very difficult circumstances amid many wars.
