Hatred: Murder of the Innocent tackles the Volhynian tragedy of 1943, in which up to 60,000 Poles were murdered by Ukrainian nationalists under German occupation, and up to 20,000 Ukrainians were killed in revenge attacks. Controversial enough to be banned in Ukraine, Hatred won eleven Polish film awards and was nominated for a further six. Despite being in love with a Ukrainian boy, called Petro, Polish girl Zofia is forced into marrying a wealthy widower, Maciej. When the war begins, Maciej is conscripted to the Polish Army to fight against the Germans in the September Campaign. When the campaign is lost, Maciej and other survivors try to return to their homes. In the meantime, Zofia gets pregnant by Petro but wants Maciej to believe that the child is his. Can Zofia protect herself and her son against the war raging around them?
