A young man looses his job in a club run by an influential gangster. When he demands to be paid his last salary, he is severely beaten up. He reports it to the police. The investigation is assigned to an officer who has mafia connections. The grandfather of the beaten man happens to come to Warsaw to meet with his friends from the Warsaw Uprising. Together with his former comrades, he decides to take revenge on the offenders.
