Movie Info

Based on a true story set on the Polish/German border. It is a tale of the rise and fall of Zyga, a young Polish man who wants to take charge of his life after the fall of communism, but in a time of chaos and moral anarchy, unwillingly becomes a gangster. Zyga is a witness to the complete degradation of life around him. The promised land never comes to his home town, while the Germans across the border seem to have it all. Zyga crosses the border and engages in a petty crime he calls "juma". Back home, handing out stolen goods makes him a quick hero. Before Zyga realises what is happening to him, money and power overtake his naive dreams of a better life.
