Plot synopsis
The film is based on medical personnel’s war-diaries from the Military Medical Academy’s archive in Saint-Petersburg: notes by doctors and nurses, official reports from hospitals, records of blood tests, surgeries, and deaths. The contributors of the film are veterans of the Second World War – former doctors, nurses, and patients. Their stories are truthful accounts of one of the most dreadful tragedies in the history of the war.
