Synopsis
The first film after World War II dealing with the Warsaw Rising of September 1944 in which nearly 200,000 people, mostly civilians, lost their lives. It demonstrates the nightmare of defeat and the horror of war, and leads the viewer on a powerful Dante-esque journey down into the kanals (sewers) where many fought and died. Permeated by a mood of dispair and resignation, Wadja reveals the most heroic and most tragic events which occured in the depths of this "heca-tomb."
