Plot synopsis
Drama based on the story of the same title by Konstantin Finn. A remote area of imperial Russia. The sleepy life of the petty bourgeoisie is shaken by the telegram: ìGermany has declared war on Russiaî. The worker Nikolai Kadkin leaves for the front; his brother Senka volunteers. Thousands and thousands of soldiers are driven into a senseless fight... The destinies of the filmís heroes are complex: Nikolai and his sons; Maria, the daughter of the cobbler; and the German captive Mueller...
