A theatrical concert that tells the story of a young Polish girl named Elzbieta. It's 1956 and the iron curtain is up. In Poland, jazz is emerging from the underground and serves as a symbol of freedom and liberation. Poland hosts its first ever Jazz Festival. Revolts are occurring in the Eastern bloc. Tanks surround Warsaw. During protests demanding the government release the jailed Cardinal Wyszynski, four-year-old Elzbieta's Father is arrested and disappears. the orphaned girl grows up searching for her Father against the backdrop of communist Poland. Flash forward to 1981 as Elzbieta revisits those recollections when tanks return to the streets as martial law is declared. Through flashback vignettes, live jazz, classical, and electronic music selections, text, poetry, videos, and historical photography and footage, we witness Elzbieta's scarring memories, share her poignant reminiscences, and observe her actions as she chronicles her life in search of her Father and herself in a time where identity was officially stamped by Big Brother but was defined and realized by the people. We are witness to a life that is constantly threatened by the regime whose official image directly opposes the rapidly developing political and artistic movements. It is through this turmoil that Elzbieta develops the desire to stand up for liberty and for Poland
