An exceptional story of a 10-year-old Wiesio, one of thousands of Polish children who were saved from the hell of World War II by an Indian Maharajah. In the Easter of 1940 the boy, together with his mother and brother, was arrested by NKVD and deported to Siberia. He shared the dramatic fate of thousands of Polish deportees. His rescue arrived from the least expected direction. Maharaja of Nawanagar builds a refugee camp for polish children. At the end of war he also adopts all the minors from the camp, so they do not get under communistic jurisdiction of new polish government controlled by Stalin.
