Synopsis

'The Scar' is the assured debut theatrical feature by the director of the 'Three Colours' trilogy and 'Dekalog'. In the impoverished Polish town of Olecko, Stefan Bednarz (Franciszek Pieczka) is put in charge of the construction of a large chemical plant, which is being built against the wishes of the local populace. Although it will improve the town's prospects and provide badly needed new jobs, the factory will also mean the destruction of many homes and adversely affect the environment. Despite his best efforts to convince the townspeople of the benefits, Bednarz has difficulty reconciling the gulf between his good intentions and reality.
