Storyline

The 1980s in Poland - the very center of a bleak landscape between martial law and the Round Table. In a small, forgotten city somewhere in the south-west of Poland, there is a brutal double murder: a young prostitute and a local communist activist. At the same time, teenagers also commit suicide. Witold Wanycz (Andrzej Seweryn), an experienced, slightly bitter journalist, is to write about the murder in the local newspaper. At the same time, a young editor is employed in the same editorial office: Piotr Zarzycki (Dawid Ogrodnik) - son of a high-ranking party activist. He begins his own journalistic investigation. The more involved in the case, the deeper sinks into the title royst - the swamp, from which it is difficult to get out. Written by ahmetkozan

Very impressive. To a certain extent - a dark, naturalistic mix of Twin Peaks and True Detective
29 November 2018 | by jackalplSee all my reviews

1984 (a coincidental choice? I do not think 'tis so...). A fictitious voivodeship city in late-communist Poland (with its degenerate monoparty's power being behind almost anything that goes on there).

This bleak city, with its foresty and marshy surroundings, is a character of its own - it pulls you in, and does not want to let you go. Ever. Darkness is dwelling here - covering some of the ugliness but also feeding on the past and being constantly reinforced by the present, overshadowing the future and hope. Killing innocence.

An old, weary journalist, together(?) with his new, enthusiastic and idealistic colleague attempt to shed some light on the darkness. Will they be able to fully pierce through it? And should they bring out to plain view everything they manage to uncover...?
