The film is about the civil war in the Zangezur (Syunik) province of Armenia in the early 1920s. The last Dashnak battalions headed by Sparapet Nzhdeh still opposed both the incursion of Red Army and the local Bolshevik partisans.
Historical reality: The battle of Stalingrad was directed Marshal Zhukov, but he was not even mentioned in this film. The reason was that after the Second World War, Zhukov's fame increased rapidly, and Stalin was unhappy about it, so he sent Zhukov to be the commander-in-chief of romote military districts in order to eliminate this potential political threat. This film faithfully followed the Stalin's will, discounting what Zhukov had accomplished and gave the credit to Stalin instead.
