Plot synopsis
May 1945 On the outskirts of Prague, ordinary people greet Soviet soldiers-liberators with tears of joy in their eyes. In the first days of the calm, someone sadly recalls the pre-war life; someone unexpectedly meets their love; someone is returning from enemy dungeons, looking hopefully into the future; and someone, having moved from a tank to a Czech tram, fondly recalls their trade as a tram driver ... These days, all who survived the fire of the Great War take an oath to keep peace on Earth forever, honoring the memory of those who gave their lives for simple human happiness.
