Alors qu'ils tentent de rejoindre leurs compagnons, un petit groupe de soldats soviétiques se retrouvent piégés face à une unité spéciale de la Wehrmacht. Le combat semble perdu d'avance, mais ils vont trouver une aide inespérée auprès d'un personnage mythique : le Red Ghost, un fantôme que personne n'a jamais vu et qui sème la mort parmi les Nazis.

Plot synopsis
December 30, 1941. Leaving the encirclement of the village of Vyazma, a small detachment of Soviet soldiers engages in an unequal battle with a special unit of the Wehrmacht. Every Red Army man is ready to sacrifice his life for the sake of his homeland. And among them was a half-human half-ghost who inspired the fascists with deadly, animal fear ... Almost no one saw him, but the mountains of corpses that he leaves behind are always very visible ... In ancient Greece, his name would most likely be Ares, but During World War II everyone knew him as The Red Ghost. There were legends about him on both sides of the barricades.
