The end of the nineteenth century. The city of Łódź – the craddle of Polish textile industry. Three friends: a Pole – Karol Borowiecki, a German – Max Baum and a Jew – Moritz Welt, want to set up a textile factory in Łódź. They use various tricks enforced by ruthless cotton magnates. After the fire consumes their brand new factory, their paths diverge. Karol compromises noble ideals and breaks off the engagement with Anka to marry Mada Mueller, a daughter of the biggest manufacturer Müller, which enables him to come into possession of the greatest capital in Łódź. A film adaptation of the novel by Władysław Reymont, being an epic image of the conflicts of the 19th-century capitalist Łódź. The Promissed Land won: Chicago International Film Festival –Grand Prix (1975), Gdynia Film Festival – Grand Prix (1975), Moscow International Film Festival (1975).
