“Irina's Department” will soon be shown in cinemas

World War II continues. 19-year-old Irina (Sophie Nélisse) loses contact with her family in the midst of war. She was forced to work as a slave in a German munitions factory. Her situation improves when an SS major (Dougray Scott) comes to her attention. The man, infatuated with the assertive girl, notices that she is overworked and promotes her in the factory structure. Irina takes on new responsibilities in the kitchen, and later is also tasked with running a tailoring workshop where about a dozen Jews work. The heroine manages to overhear the conversation of the Germans, from which she learns about plans to liquidate the nearby ghetto and decides to find a way to rescue the workers under her supervision. A solution to the situation soon emerges – a young Polish woman is offered a job as a housekeeper on the Rogmer estate. Irina decides to take advantage of her employer's trust and hide the Jews who previously worked in the sewing factory in his house. But the conspiracy does not last long. Rogmer discovers Irina's secret and gives her an ultimatum that is difficult to accept.
