You are a Polish 18-year-old on a mission to piece together the story of your great-grandfather, a heroic resistance fighter in Paris during WW2! Your family has always found it too painful to talk about the war, but you are dying to know what happened. Armed with his old, half-ruined scrapbook, you set off in search of answers. All you know is that he helped to save Paris at the end of the war, then never spoke about it again.
