Synopsis

The lengths people go to in order to survive are explored in this harrowing and claustrophobic Holocaust drama, set largely in the rat-infested sewers of Nazi-occupied Poland. Based on a true story, it challenges our traditional views of heroism and villainy, as sewer inspector and petty thief Leopold Socha stumbles upon a way of making easy money when he encounters a group of Jews trying to escape the liquidation of the Lvov ghetto. As long as they keep paying, the contemptuous Socha agrees to hide them in his subterranean workplace - a dark, dank and oppressive hell that’s filmed so well you'll almost feel like you're there. But a simple business transaction turns into something far deeper after Socha’s conscience unexpectedly starts to bite.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
