Synopsis

The year 1990. A group of former SB (the secret police in communist Poland) officers after positive vetting is incorporated into the Police force. Franz Maurer is one of them. The policeman, who's been through a lot, abandoned by his wife, finds it difficult to pull himself together in the new reality. His friend, Olgierd Żwirski, who did not pass the vetting process, ends up out of work. During one of the first operations against an international criminal group, the police squad led by Franz unexpectedly meets with armed resistance from criminals – two policemen are killed in the shooting. Maurer suspects that such a daring action could have only been endeavored by former SB officers. He swears revenge for the death of his colleagues. He also intends to help Olgierd to return to active duty. Only he does not know that Olgierd has already been recruited by the criminal group of the former SB-eks.
