Plot synopsis
Yugoslavia, 1999. The Russian task force receives an order to take control of the Slatina airport in Kosovo and hold it until the arrival of the reinforcements. The task force is squaring off with the terrorists in an uphill battle while Russian peacekeepers and NATO forces are rushing to support. But for Andrei Shatalov, the commander of the task force, politics are an afterthought. His girlfriend Yasna is among the hostages at the airport.
