Inspired by true events surrounding Nobel Peace Prize nominee, Irena Sendler, The Plumber is an adventure/suspense short about how the courageous act of one person can make a big difference. Irena and her network rescued over 2,000 Jewish children from Warsaw during WWII, and the film is a fast-paced glimpse into the day to day of that time. As curfew approaches, we follow Irena, posing as a plumbing specialist, through the shadows of Warsaw. She risks it all in a smuggling operation, but the pressure of Nazi-occupied Poland looms ever closer and her bravery is put to the test when she encounters a German pilot with a sense of duty.
“A small moment in time that is dangerous and yet leaves the viewer with hope and levity.”
