The film is based on a true story of the 9th company during the Soviet invasion in Afghanistan in the 1980's. Young Soviet Army recruits are sent from a boot camp into the middle of the war in Afghanistan. The action is not like a boot camp at all. It is very bloody and dirty. The 9th company is defending the hill 3234. They are hopelessly calling for help.Written by
Actually these were the words of Dzhokonda and he really believed in what he said. He is an artist.......... he has that right. But what Luty said in reply made the moment to remember - war is no beautiful, war is full of horrors and death. two opposite points actually describe the sense. They went to Afghanistan - but they had different reasons for that...... some had to pass the obligatory duty to the Soviet Union and had no chance to escape that so they chose Afghanistan for they saw some unknown reason in that.... or they were even ordered to, some just wanted to look cool, some didn't know where they were going to (they didn't realize). This war was terrible....... this episode of the war showed uselessness of it in the fullest size ever.
