Storyline

Based on a true story. Two fighters of 'Donbas' Volunteer Battalion get locked inside city of Ilovaysk after regular Russian army enters Ukraine and shells the surrounded divisions of Ukrainian Army in the infamous would-be 'green corridor'. The fighters survive thanks to the help of the locals and manage to break out through the front line to reach the freed territory. Taras Kostanchuk who is playing himself as 'Beshoot' is that same Donbas commander who is the prototype of the story. Half of the actors and extras are real 'Donbas' volunteers who survived the battle.

Great movie, sorta documentary quite close to real events
4 September 2019 | by dminfcSee all my reviews

I liked it. I am IDP from Donetsk 2 guys i knew before war died in Ilovaisk. They were from Donetsk. And one of the main problem in film they don't tell many Donbass regiment soldiers, they were from Donetsk region, locals.

Except some minor inconsistencies film is great for its budget

P.S. In film they mentioned parade in Kyiv, while they were dying in Ilovaisk, i don't agree with such opinion. Parade was really important in August 2014 - Independence Day.
