Walter Presents: Polish drama The Defence

Walter Presents kicks off its Polish season – which is running from June to August – with WALTER PRESENTS: THE DEFENCE (Chyłka. Zaginięcie) which follows a well-regarded lawyer who agrees to help her friends when their baby goes missing.

Joanna Chylka is a capable, uncompromising, courageous and rebellious lawyer in a legal world full of men who don’t give in to anything. When three-year-old Nikola Szlezyngier disappears without a trace and the police find no evidence of kidnapping, the child’s parents become the main suspects. Desperate, they decide to contact Chylka, an old friend, who agrees to undertake their defence despite other cases piling up on her desk and mountains of evidence indicating the couple’s guilt. Will her legal team manage to find the real guilty party, or has the truth been under their noses this whole time?

Adapted from a renowned novel by Remigiusz Mróz, The Defence stars award-winning actress Magdalena Cielecka and Piotr Zurawski who viewers may recognise from Walter Presents: The Border. 2021’s Polish Season which includes the recently announced Raven and The King of Warsaw will represent and celebrate the multitude and versatility of recent Polish content.

The full season 1 boxset (7 episodes) is available on Walter Presents via All 4 from Friday, 4 June.
