Movie Info

A rube goes to work in the big city and finds himself victimized by the government system he was trained to support in this Polish comedy set in the year of Solidarity, 1991. Country boy Tomasz works in a power plant. He feels alone because he doesn't understand his co-worker's impassioned support of Lech Walesa and unionization. His boss asks him to sneak into an illegal rally and note who is there. Unfortunately, Tomasz is deeply affected by the group and joins the unionists in singing patriotic songs. The police come and break up the rally. A chase ensues. The next day poor Tomasz is arrested because his picture was in the paper with the other unionists. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
