Łódż at the end of the 19th century. The booming textile city is characterised by extreme social contrasts. The Pole Karol, German Max and Jew Moryc establish a factory together and yet fail due to the ruthlessness of their adversaries. An opulently staged film adaptation of Władysław Reymont's novel on luxury and poverty, passion and failure, and intercultural entanglements in the “Manchester of Poland”.
