Plot synopsis
A German explosives specialist, Lt. Rudolf Ohnesorg (David C. Bunners), decides not to flee with his comrades at the end of the war, but rather, to return to the USSR as a minesweeper, in order to atone for his “crimes.” Accompanied by a very suspicious, battle-hardened Red Army captain, Viktor Demin (Vladimir Vdovichenkov), and Nelia (Ol'ga Krasko), a soft-hearted female lieutenant who serves as their interpreter, Ohnesorg succeeds in locating and disassembling mines (thereby saving countless Soviet lives), before he is killed in an explosion. It is June 22, 1945, the fourth anniversary of the invasion.
