“War es eigentlich möglich, sich inmitten des Warschauer Ghettos zu verlieben und eine Liebesbeziehung zu führen? Wie war es möglich, in den schweren Zeiten eine Bindung zu einem Menschen aufzubauen, ohne zu wissen, welchen Weg das Schicksal für sie vorgesehen hat? Basierend auf Marek Edelmans Buch und seinen Erinnerungen zeigen die Filmemacher Jolanta Dylewska und Andrzej Wajda, wie im Warschauer Ghetto die Liebe zu einem hohen Gut wurde, das sogar stärker als das Leben selbst war.”
