86-year-old Moshe Knebel appears to be a regular grandfather. Maybe a tad sturdier and stronger than most, but still a normal old man. Moshe Knebel, however, is anything but ordinary. He took revenge. Today, years later, he decides to take his three children back to his village in Poland, and tell them his story, the one with the dark side.

Moshe's children have heard stories about their father all their lives. About his family being murdered during the Holocaust. About how Moshe's friends and neighbors turned his family in to the Nazis. About how he hid in the woods with the partisans and survived. But they always knew not to ask too much about what happened next.

After the war, Moshe went back to Poland and took revenge on those responsible for killing his family. He joined the UB, the Polish secret police, a group that operated in Poland after the war with the purpose to fight those opposing the Communist regime, yet in secret they avenged victims and killed Nazis and their collaborators...
