It's 1942 and the Soviets have fallen back under German attack. The Soviets are secretly building a bridge to launch a counter-attack. They sent paratroopers to help partisans in enemy territory to locate German forces. With intel of impending German reinforcements, they launch a surprise attack. Paratrooper Alexei Kulkov with local guide Lisa Elenko take seven German soldiers prisoners but become trapped under a collapsed building.

This was shown at a time when the Soviets were still Allies. Aside from the war action scenes, this is essentially an one room play. My only concern is that I don't see these characters talk so easily. The writing is definitely trying to be smarter than most. Alexei should definitely force the prisoners to sit down. There is a few things about this that rings a little false. It wouldn't matter as much if this isn't reaching for the higher levels. This is not the standard war movie. It's trying to be more and the little annoyances hurt.
