A woman tries to survive the invasion of Berlin by the Soviet troops during the last days of World War II.
The movie's source novel is the diary of an unnamed woman, called Anonyma, from April 29, 1945 to June 22, 1945.
Soldier! Why are you taking a woman against her will?
When Germany's surrender is announced, the Soviet troops start singing the "Alexandrov version" of their national anthem, adopted about a year earlier. That version had no lyrics until Stalin intervened, and the heavy fighting wouldn't have allowed the soldiers to learn them. They most likely sang the chorus of "The Internationale," an earlier, better-known version.
