This is not a documentary of the war in Korea but a dramatized study of the effect of war on a group of people. Where dramatic license has been deemed necessary, the authors have taken advantage of this license to dramatize the subject.
This film depicts a fictionalized version of the tragic Hangang Bridge bombing which killed nearly 1,000 South Korean refugees. In the film's version of the events, the North Koreans need to cross the bridge in order to advance into Seoul. Why do the tanks fire on the bridge, causing damage to the structure, when it is necessary for them to cross it intact?
