When his mother dies, Kashubian boy Mateusz (Sebastian Fabijański) is taken in by the Prussian aristocrat Gerda von Krauss (Anna Radwan). In her palace, a love affair blossoms between Mateusz and the Countess’s daughter Marita (Marianna Zydek), while the boy’s godfather Bazyli (Janusz Gajos) is a Kashub patriot fighting against Prussian influence in his homeland. An epic costume drama, The Butler spans four decades during which ethnic tensions flared in the Polish-German borderlands of Kashubia, culminating in violent atrocities.
