THE IRON BRIDGE is the directorial feature film debut of Łódź Film School graduate Monika Jordan-Młodzianowska with gripping performances by Julia Kijowska and Bartłomiej Topa.
Set in the Silesian mining community the film follows a love-triangle between Kacper, Oskar and his wife Magda. Kacper, who works as a foreman, has an affair with the wife of his best friend Oskar, also a miner. He sends Oskar to the most distant parts of the pit, so he can spend more time with Magda. As they enjoy their rendezvous, powerful explosion traps Oskar underground. The methane being released makes it impossible to get to him and so, convinced by Kacper, the head of the rescue operation decides to reach him by drilling a hole from the surface, like it was done during the famous operation in Chile. Overwhelmed with guilt the lovers throw themselves into the rescue mission in hope of saving Oskar but also their conscience.
