The Price of Freedom: A Solidarity Story focuses on the birth of the Solidarity movement across Poland and my father’s Krzysztof Bialo’s involvement in the anti communist campaign. The film follows the history of Poland from World War II up until the first free elections in the late 80’s.

Interwoven with the historical aspect is Krys’s personal journey starting with his childhood, acceptance as a member of Solidarity, his arrest after the declaration of Martial Law and eventually our family’s emigration to Canada.
