Summary, etc.:
As Nazi forces encroach on his small village in Belorussia, teenage Flyora eagerly joins the Soviet resistance. Rather than the adventure and glory he envisioned, what he finds is a waking nightmare of unimaginable carnage and cruelty. Nearly blocked from being made by Soviet censors, who took seven years to approve its script, is perhaps the most visceral, impossible-to-forget antiwar film ever made.
