The Lodger

The Lodger

The peaceful life of the tenants of a tenement house in Warsaw’s quarter Mokotów is shaken with the appearance of the building’s new owner. With his increasingly repressive behaviour the man forces one family after another out of their flats. The last and most stubborn lodger is brutally murdered. A police investigation is inconclusive. After a while a young ambitious officer, Anna Szerucka, takes it over. The clues lead her to pick up a trail of an intrigue involving officials, public services and high-ranking members of the Bar. Inspired by true events, a story of an unexplained crime, a corrupted system and the investigating officer’s fight against it.
