This period drama focuses on the lives of two feuding Polish families -- the Soplicas and the Horeszkos. As the country decides how to deal with Russia by either supporting its neighbor or invading it as allies of France, the tale reflects this conflict in the form of the handsome Tadeusz (Michal Zebrowski), a member of the Soplica family who must decide between a relationship with the young Zosia (Alicja Bachleda-Curus) or the refined Telimena (Grazyna Szapolowska).
