Director Sergiu Nicolaescu, obsessed by his people's history, focuses here on a crucial moment not only for the Romanians, but for humanity: World War One. Of course, the movie presents mainly the Romanian participation to the war, but not entirely separated by the European picture of that time. In fact, it is a tribute to the heroes that fought and died for the most sacred Romanian dream: the Unification. The main character of the film is Ecaterina Teodoriu, a young but courageous woman who sacrified for this purpose. Sergiu Nicolaescu also plays one of the key characters, General Averescu.
