A Grain of Truth

A Grain of Truth

In this suspenseful detective thriller, a maverick prosecutor finds himself dragged into the investigation of a string of ritual killings rooted in Poland’s anti-Semitic past.

Once the star of the Warsaw prosecutors’ office, Teodor Szacki (Polish Academy Award-winning actor Robert Więckiewicz) has ended his career and marriage to start a new life in a sleepy southeast Polish town. Seen as an outsider by the close-knit community, he faces resistance when called in to get to the bottom of the brutal murder of a well-known social activist. As the trail of victims grows and the killer remains elusive. Aided by a veteran police detective, a reluctant female prosecutor, and a local rabbi, Teodor must unravel the painful tangle of Polish-Jewish relations and solve the case while facing a rising tide of public and media hysteria.
