Lech Kowalski travels the oldest highway in Poland, built by Hitler. He discovers that it is now a vital link to the west and encounters people that connect it to the present. A Bulgarian girl under an umbrella scared her pimp may show up and see that business is horrible. A one legged man selling mushrooms in the tornado wake of speeding trucks describing the best way to cook what he sells. Illegal Ukrainians hiding on a deserted Nuclear airbase serve tea to a cop patrolling the property. Young people escaping the glare of reality in underground bunkers. A gypsy in a candle lit hut remembers how he lost his father to the Holocaust. The people on Hitler's Highway make it more than a remnant of history.."They were as curious about me as I was about them. It was just a matter of time before we got together and spoke." Lech Kowalski
