While apprenticing for a woodworker in Nazi-occupied Warsaw, young Stach (Tadeusz Lomnicki) befriends the older Sekula (Janusz Paluszkiewicz), a Communist organizer who introduces the teen to the underground resistance. Soon, Stach falls for the beautiful resistance leader Dorota (Urszula Modrzynska) and becomes an impassioned fighter for the cause in the assured debut of master Polish director Andrzej Wajda.
