The film tells the story of Zygmunt Lubicz-Zaleski (1882–1967) – a poet, writer, translator, music, art and literary critic, doctor of philosophy, and author. Forced to emigrate due to political reasons, in 1914 he committed himself fully to teaching Polish in France. His lectures turned out to be the cornerstone of Polish language studies in France.

After the outbreak of the war, he became a member of the Polish resistance movement in France, a chairman of the Polish Red Cross, which helped refugees, and the president of the Welfare Society for the Poles in France. He set up the Polish lycee in Villard-de-Lans, near Grenoble in France, the only free Polish school in occupied Europe. Arrested on 19 March 1943 by the Italian fascists and handed over to the Nazis, after a period of brutal interrogation he was sent to the Buchenwald concentration camp.
