Edited film examines the Afghan civil war through interviews with Russian military men who outline their perceptions of their mission in Afghanistan and the legitimacy of their presence; they describe the conditions and dangers of duty and characterize the nature of the Afghan rebels. Moscow civilians, including the bereaved parents of sons lost in battle, express their feelings about the Russian military intervention in Afganistan.
