Who are You, Mr. Grymek?
The story of a wealthy Jewish family living in Cracow whose idyllic life is shattered in the midst of invasion by the Nazi army in Poland. Experiencing, on one hand, immense adversities, denunciations and arrest, and, on the other, miraculous rescues, incredible escapes and the occasional example of human kindness, the family survived until the end of the war, but just when liberation was in sight the uprising of Warsaw in August 1944 brought fresh troubles.
