After WWII Poland fell to communist block against the will of majority of the society. Film is an attempt to show the soul of Polish society through private letters. Letters which were censored and often used to persecute a sender and a receiver of the letter although Constitution Act guaranteed secrecy of correspondence in People’s Republic of Poland. Black and white film is a mosaic of never shown archive footage, letters which are red by careful chosen voices and Secret Service internal messages which shows Orwell’s size organization in action in the years 1945-1989.
