For the first time since the post-war era, two artists – Roman Polański and Ryszard Horowitz – walk and talk on the streets of Cracow, the city of their childhood. Polański came to Cracow with his parents from Paris, Horowitz was born in Cracow. The creators are well established professionally, have achieved great artistic success in their lives, and are united by their passion. Walking around, they recall their early years, including the traumatic period during the war. They tell how they managed to survive World War II and almost certain death. Roman Polański was hidden by the Buchała family, Ryszard Horowitz as a small child was put on Schindler’s list.
