    TELL ME THE TRUTH ABOUT LOVE

    A TRUE STORY OF LOVE (previously TELL ME THE TRUTH ABOUT LOVE)
    A certain Pole – Smokowski, dressed as a Gestapo officer blackmails another Pole (Freiberg) believing that he is a Jew. Freiberg being deeply insulted by taking him for a Jew reports the blackmailer to the police. The blackmailer later takes a cruel revenge… The true historic events described above became only a premise for a contemporary romantic comedy…
    The story unfolds in the present-day and is told from the perspective of love-hate relationship between the descendants of the families involved – Alan Freiberg and Anna Smokowska. Anna and Alan meet and develop a crush on each other. This love becomes a curse, when it forces them to confront the painful truth about the past. As they uncover this truth love becomes almost an impossibility…
    This is a story about Truth, Forgiveness and Love…
