Synopsis
Following World War II., Upper Silesia became Polish. Millions of people from the annexed Eastern Polish territories were forcibly resettled here. They brought their language and their culture into this new, foreign world, and immediately collided with the traditions of the local population. From then on, old and new inhabitants, victors and vanquished had to live as next-door neighbours. However, even today, they cannot seem to build any sort of community. Since almost 70 years the history of Upper Silesia is being silenced and suppressed, and the traces of its former cultures are still being erased. Most of the old inhabitants have either moved away or live in seclusion.
After the borders to Eastern Europe were unexpectedly opened, the younger generations from Upper Silesia want to know where they live. But nobody wants to answer their questions.
