Nazi-occupied Poland, 1943. Polish sewer worker and petty thief Leopold Socha (Wieckiewicz) uses the city's fetid tunnels to conceal the loot he uses to support his family. But when a group of Jewish refugees ask him to hide them in exchange for cash, his fate suddenly hangs in the balance.
Unlucky to miss out a Best Foreign Film Oscar, this moving war flick is a nerve-jangling odyssey into the underground world. Recommended.
