The deeply frozen Cold War is heating up. Twenty years after a devastating terrorist attack in 1983 that halted the course of Poland's liberation and the subsequent downfall of the Soviet Union, an idealistic law student and a disgraced police investigator stumble upon a conspiracy that has kept the Iron Curtain standing and Poland living under a repressive police state. Now, in 2003, after two decades of peace and prosperity, the leaders of the regime enact a secret plan made with an unlikely adversary in the 1980s that will radically transform Poland and affect the lives of every citizen in the nation - and the world. What these two men discover has the potential to ignite a revolution and those in power will stop at nothing to keep it a secret.Written by

Grim Polish hriller
I've been a fan of Polish Cinema for over 50 years. 1983 reminds me of
the black and white movies from the 60's and 70's. Very tightly directed and
it's great to see so many talented young Polish actors and actresses.
Special shout out for Agnieszka Zulewska who plays Maja, Katejan's mother.
It's heartbreaking to see her try to survive.
Robert Wieckiewicz is one of my favorite Polish Actors.
Great choice for this role.
I hope there's another season and I hope to see more
Polish Productions on Netflix. Poland has a rich history in cinema and there is so much talent.
