A teenaged girl befriends the Polish literati during Nazi occupation. Like them, she overcomes decades of oppression from German and Soviet occupation in her homeland to keep writing and publishing her poetry, but she remains in Poland to do it. In addition, she must overcome denigration by the men she must rely upon to get ahead, as well as KGB spies, betrayal, and death to discover her greatness as a Nobel laureate in 1996. The characters are based on the lives and writings of Wislawa Szymborska, Czeslaw Milosz, Witold Gombrowicz, Tadek Borowski, and Zbigniew Herbert.
