Spring of 1981. A wave of strikes sweeps through Poland. Communist authorities are trying to find ways to destroy Solidarity.
Four 18-year-old kids in a seaside town form a punk rock band. Their leader Janek is the son of a prominent navy officer. The boys have more in common than just their passion for music. They also share a fascination with the mature beauty of Janek’s neighbour and wife of communist politician Sokołowski, and a crush on their classmate Basia, daughter of a Solidarity activist.
On December 13, 1981 martial law is imposed in Poland and politics take over the boys’ previously carefree life. Sokołowski is appointed military commissar with omnipotent authority over the whole town…
