“Own Truth” is an animation based on facts that tells the personal story of my family and our departure from Poland to Germany in the fall of 1981. My mother says that she said goodbye knowing that we were going away only for three months. My Grandma said we would never see each other again.
Shortly before the scheduled return in December 1981. Martial law broke out. It would be unwise to return to Poland at that time, everyone said so. Though my mother was not so sure. In the film, she asks herself a question and answers it: what do we need for happiness? What is really important that we can opt out of?
