In poverty, she found strength. In oppression, she found courage. In solidarity, she found a reason to believe again. Acclaimed German actress Katharina Thalbach (THE TIN DRUM, SOPHIES CHOICE) stars in this hard-hitting historical drama set during the rise of Polands Solidarity movement. An illiterate single mother, Agnieszka Kowalska is a Socialist "heroine of labor" for working long hours as a shipyard welder until her superiors deny compensation to the widows of 21 workers killed in an industrial disaster. Risking her job, her life, and the love of her son to defy the bureacracy, Agnieszka inspires the largest labor strike in world history and becomes a national hero. Volker Schlöndorff adapted this "ballad based on historical events" from the biography of Anna Walentynowicz, the free trade activist who mobilized a million Poles for Solidarity and helped hasten the fall of Communism. Filmed entirely on location at Polands Lenin Shipyard, where history was made.
Hard-core rocker Glenn Danzig personally combed through the archives to choose tracks for this collection of videos, outtakes, alternative versions and previously unreleased material from his band's "Danzig 4" (2000) and "Danzig 5" (2002) projects. The result is a variety of versions of classic hits such as "Cantspeak," "I Don't Mind the Pain," "Sacrifice," "Sadistikal," "Serpentia" and "Until You Call on the Dark."

The plagued climate of the era is realized in the encounter and later in the friendship between the general Konrad Von Der Berg, who refused to command a ruthless suppression of opponents and from whose diary the story is drawn, and Eric Von Lehner Baron, who has orders to escort Von Der Berg to a prison camp.
