A portrait of a remarkable man who volunteered to face the unknown in the name of truth and country. In 1940, Witold Pilecki volunteered to assume a false identity and deliberately get himself sent to the camp. Its name was Auschwitz. Over the next two and half years, and under the cruellest conditions, Pilecki worked to forge an underground army to sabotage camp facilities and foment rebellion. He pieced together the horrifying truth and realized he would have to risk his men and even his life to smuggle out evidence and warn the West, and thus stop the horror before all was lost.

To do so meant attempting the impossible: an escape from Auschwitz itself.
