Synopsis: Two Eagles House is a historical series depicting the tragically intertwined fates of Poles, Germans and Ukrainians, whose paths cross in an old, post-German villa built in Breslau, now Wrocław. The series opens in 1997, the day before the historic flood that hit Wrocław. A talented student of architecture Marianna Szablewska, together with her American fiancé Paul, returns to her hometown from a U.S. scholarship programme. The girl wants to introduce Paul to Helena, her mother, and Zofia – her beloved grandmother. At night, the house gets flooded up to the first floor. Among numerous findings, the falling water reveals a previously well-hidden diary of Lisa Weber, whose entries take the viewers back to 1918, to the estate of the Webers, a family of German origin, and to Kresy, the borderlands of the former Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, where the Szablewski family and their Ukrainian neighbours used to live side by side.
