A story about events that played a key role in the organization of the Wielkopolska Uprising and about the people who prepared the uprising, fought in it, and won. Influence, which is part action movie and part thriller, showcases a mixture of real and fictional characters, and conveys the atmosphere of an era that brought about the end of the old world and the birth of a new one.
