The film is dedicated to the forced eviction in 1944-1946 of more than 480,000 Ukrainians from the territories located in modern south-eastern Poland: Kholm, Nadsyannia, Podlasie and Lemko.

The picture is structurally divided into 4 parts – according to the number of stages of deportation. In each part, an eyewitness tells historical facts mainly about the period 1944-1946, shows documents, maps, photos, chronicles, newspapers. It describes and shows the arrival of the USSR on the territory of Poland, the establishment of a puppet communist government headed by Edward Osubka-Moravski and how the government expelled Ukrainians from their right-wing lands.

Simultaneously with the historical documentary story, a game plot unfolds, which shows the interrogation of a resettler in the KGB office 20 years after the end of the deportation. The resettler is being interrogated by the KGB for spreading false information. They argue about the nature of deportation and its features – the deportee tells the truth – what she saw with her own eyes, about the coercion and horror of deportation; and the KGB, brought up by lies and fakes – Soviet ideology and the press – denies everything. The story of the deportee is always supplemented by memories from the car in which she and other Ukrainians were transported from Poland to the Ukrainian SSR in terrible conditions.
