Plot synopsis
The story of Andrei Borzenko, a Soviet boxer who passed through the Buchenwald concentration camp, is a real-life confirmation that the fortitude of the human spirit can work wonders. Borzenko spent more than 80 fights and was never defeated, even though he was in terrible conditions that were practically incompatible with life. The film shows the resilience and patriotism of Soviet people during the Great Patriotic War.
