Set in Wroclaw in 1981, 80 Million is an exciting political thriller about the struggle against Communism, full of suspense, humor and surprising twists and turns. The title refers to the amount of zlotys that five young union leaders withdrew from the Solidarity bank account just days before the declaration of martial law in Poland and the freezing of the account. Their daring feat took place in spite of the fact that the feared Security Services were dogging their every move. The money was later used to build the underground resistance movement.

Director Waldemar Krzystek notes, “It is a piece of recent history, and above all, the story of the people who made it. People who very often had to drastically change to handle challenging situations in which they found themselves. Including situations one might never expect like… robbing a bank! […] We wanted to speak truthfully about the young, brave people who were capable of doing wise and magnificent acts together, and – regardless of the cost – have won.”
