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

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
