REPRESENTED BY KFF
The Round Table talks and the first, partially free, parliamentary elections in June 1989 brought hope for better future for many, also prisoners, often convicted because of minor criminal and economic offences. Great hopes for amnesty aroused at first soon billowed into disappointment, discontent and revolt. The documentary presents the largest prison riots in Europe after World War II that took place in the penitentiaries in Nowogard, Czarne and Goleniów.
