In 1940 the Soviet Union ordered the execution of 22,000 Polish prisoners of war, 4,500 of whom were murdered in the Katyn forest in Russia. In a remarkably detailed documentary, Cédric Tourbe brings to light how this crime against humanity occurred and sheds light on the paranoid and ruthless inner workings of the Soviet state.
