The story is about a young single mother who is compelled to make her way at risk of her life to Ckhinvali, where her son is, whom she had sent there on the eve of the conflict. The film can be divided into two parts that alternate one with the other: one shows how in the eyes of a young boy the South Ossetian conflict transforms into a fantastic war story with super-robots, and the second shows the reality of the war situation and the journey of the main heroine.

Did You Know?


The planned Ukrainian premiere of 1st March 2012 was disrupted because the Ukrainian Ministry of Culture had not issued a certificate of the film on time. The Ukrainian media wrote that the Ministry had banned the movie, but ultimately the premiere took place on March 15th, but in a very limited release - 44 screens - which had a very negative impact on its box office figures.

A very enjoyable film
30 January 2019 | by harryplinkett14See all my reviews

I enjoyed this film so much. It proves that propaganda can be delightful. This film delves fearlessly into propaganda, passes infinity, and loops back to become something I really liked a lot. I liked the characters, I liked the plot, despite its formulaic structure, and I liked the Playstation-style warfare. It's all so charming that you go with it, even until the predictable ending. And there is justice here: Russia strikes back at the torrent of lies and ideological abuse coming from various western countries. And at the end of the day, it is more truthful than anything CNN will ever report. Russia did come to save the day, and protect South Ossetia from a brutal invasion by Georgia. I say Russia deserves a little treat in the form of this film.
