The film is an adaptation of a true story about the episode when a few scientists from Torun's “Solidarity” broke into the building of the Communist Polish Television. The event took place in the autumn of 1985, during the broadcasting of the evening news (“Dziennik Telewizyjny”). It made the Communist Security Service go completely berserk. The scientists broadcast two slogans: “No more price increases, lies and repression. Torun Solidarity” and “Boycotting elections is our duty. Torun Solidarity”. The slogans were broadcast on TV screens for four minutes. The film is a fictionalised documentary, based on interviews with participants of the events, supplemented by fictionalised reconstructions, archive footage and animations. The entire film community of Torun took part in the making of this documentary.
