Young poet Tolek Gonczar joins the Polish resistance. His first big operation is the ambush for German train transporting the troops for eastern front.


Young poet Tolek Gonczar joins the resistance group in Poland. Together with his friends Wlodek and Zosia they receive their first important orders - they take part in blowing up the train transporting troops to the eastern front. The operation seems to be well prepared - they have the explosives, few handgranades and guns. Tolek takes care of the old gatekeeper - he ties him up so Germans would not suspect him of collaboration - and waits for the train. The explosion blows up the bridge when the military transport was crossing it, but now the whole group is chased by the Germans.

One of the movies presenting not easy decisions young people had to take during the occupation of their countries - submit to Nazi oppression or take up the almost hopeless fight against the enemy. The three main characters of "Extortion of a Gray Day" chose to fight, which lead them to a sad ending. Although the story shown in the movie is quite interesting the whole production was, as many other Polish movies in 1980s, very cheap and the final product is far from being perfect.
