The Rite of Passage 1947

Program type: drama/historical
Running time: 108’
Original title: Mała matura 1947

Very warm and full of great humor story about maturation in an after Second World War reality.

It is a story about an inner war that every teenager is going through, still this one takes place in a totally uncommon environment.

Ludwik moves with his parents to Warsaw and starts education in one of the best secondary schools in town. He starts to notice girls around him, the injustice of socialist system and teenage heroes of past famous Warsaw Uprising.

And comparing to "Dead poets society", we will see a school-class of youth fighting in a different way for their freedom, happiness and typical every-day life.
