The most-watched national film since the restoration of Latvian independence currently makes big waves on international trenches. After selection to Shanghai IFF, this breathtakingly spectacular debut is included to the long list of candidates for the European Film Awards 2020. Forbidden by the Soviet propaganda machinery for more than 60 years Latvian writer Aleksandrs Grins recalled autobiographical experiences at unforgiving war by teenager soldier Artūrs Vanags in his 1934 non-fiction novel.

Legendary screenwriter Boris Frumin helped to adapt complex real story to a thrilling, suspenseful, brutal drama about harrowing uncertainties and tough choices during the First World War.
