The story of the legendary Polish pole vaulter – Władysław Kozakiewicz. At the Olympics in Moscow in 1980, Kozakiewicz shows an unsportsmanlike, offensive gesture to the Soviet audience in front of millions of TV viewers. The gesture is considered a political provocation. In Poland dominated by the Soviet Union, Kozakiewicz becomes … a national hero, gaining popularity and influence. However, when a crisis of form comes, the distinguished pole vaulter is caught by sports activists faithful to the communist regime. Will the pole-loving jumper manage to get back to the top?
