In Poland during the post-war period, the famous painter Władysław Strzemiński works as a professor in the National School of Fine Arts in Łódź. Great artist, founder of the Museum of Modern Art of the city and theorist of the current of Unionism, is considered by his students as the "Messiah of modern painting", even if the university authorities and the Ministry of Culture are not of the same opinion. Unlike other artists loyal to the Communist Party doctrines, Strzemiński does not compromise his art and, by refusing to obey to Party rules, is expelled from the University and the artists' union. The students, however, continue to support him, attending his lectures privately and transcribing his theories. Without work and weakened by the amputations suffered, Strzemiński continues to suffer the scomful action of the leaders of the Party, determined to ruin him despite his condition of poverty and destitution. And to the end, to the ideological obtuseness of Stalinism, the artist responded with the need for freedom of expression and the autonomy of art.
