Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, All the Light We Cannot See is a groundbreaking limited series that follows the story of Marie-Laure, a blind French girl and her father, Daniel LeBlanc, who flee German-occupied Paris with a legendary diamond to keep it from falling into the hands of the Nazis. Relentlessly pursued by a cruel Gestapo officer who seeks to possess the stone for his own selfish means, Marie-Laure and Daniel soon find refuge in St. Malo, where they take up residence with a reclusive uncle who transmits clandestine radio broadcasts as part of the Resistance. Yet here in this once-idyllic seaside city, Marie-Laure’s path also collides with the unlikeliest of kindred spirits: Werner, a brilliant teenager enlisted by Hitler’s regime to track down illegal broadcasts, who instead shares a secret connection to Marie-Laure as well as her faith in humanity and the possibility of hope.

While her dream dies, the other woman relinquishes control over her body for nine months. That woman hasn’t yet been able to pursue her own dreams. Complications only grow from there.

Jacek is a foodie, gay and Warsaw bon vivant who has his own TV show, several similarly eccentric close ones around him and self-destructive tendencies. A dramedy that makes fun of the Polish artistic elite, for whom Warsaw is “the only real Polish city”, quite cannot be compared to other shows. It is the authorial work of playwright and screenwriter Pawel Demirski. He wrote it from the beginning with the intention of presenting a hero contrasting with the burnout syndrome often felt today – a vital madman who believes the best is yet to come.
