The heroes of the movie Tomasz Grzywaczewski, Bartosz Malinowski and Filip Drożdż (cameraman) are traveling 8.000 km from northern Siberia to Calcutta in India through Mongolia, Gobi Desert, Tibet and the Himalayas. They are inspired and guided by the facts-based novel “The Long Walk” completed with the accounts of Witold Glinski – the true hero of the flight, who was found by the filmmakers in the small town in Cornwall (Great Britain). For Tomasz, Bartosz and Filip GULAG system is the very remote history, because they have grown up in democratic countries. Although they decided to get through one of the most wild and uninhabited places on the Earth, because world cannot forget about the victims of soviet labour camps and people, for whom freedom was the most important value.  The book “Long Walk” was, also inspiration for director Peter Weir, whose latest movie “The Way Back” is based on this story.
