1945. Communist secret police forces in Silesia build a labour camp for Germans, Silesians and Poles on the site of a former auxiliary camp of Auschwitz Birkenau. The secret police use punishing traitors as a pretext for purging the country of enemies of the system. Franek gets a job at the camp to save the woman he loves – a Polish woman named Anna. What Franek doesn’t know is that Erwin, a German man and Franek’s friend, who has long had feelings for Anna, is also an inmate at the camp. Franek joins the communists, deluding himself that he will be able to trick the system. Zgoda is the story of a love triangle, in which two young men compete for the affection of one woman.
