Plot synopsis
War drama
Love, treason, revenge, - everything mingled itself at a village farm near Pskov in August 1941. The war is raging around, but here, far away from the military operations, the own passions are breaking out. Three Soviet war prisoners who have escaped from the Germans are hiding themselves by the village elder in a shed. One of them, the old man's son, loves the neighbour girl. But the local German policeman loves her equally passionately. By the irony of fate, the foemen by persuasions become also the rivals in love. Clearly, the forces are uneven: one subordinates over the whole community, the other has to hide himself from him. After the policeman gets a refusal which is so painful for masculine ambitions, he decides to use all his authority to eliminate the concurrent and to possess the girl against her will. But it is not that simple: he does not know that his invisible rival is a sniper and one can't outmaneuver him.
"This is one of the best films I have seen recently. Russian cinematographers should be proud of this person." Alan Parker, President of the Jury of the Moscow International Film Festival (MIFF) about director Dmitry Meskhiyev
