The tale is set in Warsaw on December 24, 1981 when martial law has just been instated. Stefan, a devoted Party member and militia captain, leads a death squad assigned to execute the troublesome Father Alek, the out-spoken, charismatic supporter of Solidarity. Though Stefan has no choice but to follow orders, he cannot help but feel moved by the stirring words of the courageous priest.
