The film recounts the participation of Poles in the air battle between the German Luftwaffe and the British RAF, which took place from July to October 1940.
A story of three pilots from the No. 303 Polish Fighter Squadron – Witold Urbanowicz (the Polish squadron commander), Mirosław Feric (the half-Croatian chronicler of the unit) and John Kent (the British commander of Wing “A”, of Canadian origin).
The film uses archival materials from the National Archives in Washington, the Imperial War Museum and the Polish Institute and Sikorski Museum in London and also photos taken by Urbanowicz, Kent and other pilots. Computer simulations depicting air fights were made based on original sound recordings, Feric’s chronicles and his colleagues’ accounts.
