1941-1945. We forgot about what it was like to be a war. The Great Patriotic War was not a normal war or a battle, which in the history of our country was many. It was a war to destroy our people. Invaded Nazis did not come to conquer - they came to kill. This was not the arbitrary rule of distraught warriors and marauders - it was a plan.
This film is not about Germans and Russians. This film is not about falsifying history and appropriating other people's merits. This is a film about how the war changes people.

As the main place for filming was chosen the Borgustan in Stavropol region, the central square and the place on the road. The general texture of the terrain corresponded to the idea of the film. On the edit still had to remove poles and power lines, modern buildings and cars. Also it place is only place where there was an authentic and worked cart and a horse walking under such a cart. The problem was that all the other carts were either not on track, or put on modern wheels. The cart on wooden wheels was very thunderous and badly controlled at corners and horses, not accustomed to such, were frightened and refused to obey.
Instead of an expensive operator's crane, the aerial platform was used. It took only one frame.
Shooting of the main material took only 3 days.
Prologue and epilogue were filmed in the studio in Pyatigorsk. The sound was specially distorted to create the effect of a large room.
The installation revealed an acute shortage of personnel. Dossiers were conducted in the Inozemtsevo.
