The scoop: A Communist secret police officer — against the backdrop of 1968 Poland, rife with student riots and a government-instigated campaign against Polish Jews — lays a “honey trap” for a dissident intellectual by persuading his own girlfriend to seduce the target. The result is a bizarre love triangle that takes unexpected turns. Inspired by a true story by Pawel Jasienica.
