Russia, May 1942. Well behind friendly lines a veteran sergeant commands a small anti-aircraft unit. His troops are inexperienced women. They will soon be tested in battle as the Germans parachute a crack squad of saboteurs into the area.
An unfulfilled sergeant, is during WW2, leading a small Soviet anti aircraft outpost with only women soldiers under his command. German special forces are spottet in the woods and the sergeant with five of his women, set out to stop the Nazis, before they reach their mission goal! During all this, there are memory recaps, showing the band of six's earlier story and how they got to be where they are!Written by
Inside Fedot Vaskov 's home/office, a horseshoe is nailed above the door. It keeps changing. Sometimes the open ends point up, sometimes down. For good luck, they should always point up to capture the luck. See more »
Most of the time, women play supportive roles such as nurses, secretaries, etc. however, during World War II, many women in Russia where enlisted in combat. This movie shows their courage and their sacrifice in fighting Nazi. Definitely worth watching.
