Challenging war drama, which can be presented as a satire. Debutant Marat Sargsyan guides us through powerful labyrinth of long single take scenes, which surprises by unpredictable twists and wise choreography when everything suddenly changes for unexpected outcome and wide possibilities of own interpretation. Smart film will test your patience and attention with plenty of links to philosophy, Bible, religion, art, history and contemporary paradoxes (such as pokemons), but will not whisper any clear answers or precise explanations.

A living legend of Lithuanian cinema and theatre Valentinas Masalskis charismatically leads whole platoon of talented actors from various generations to the strangest battle. Experienced colonel is familiar with the madness of war and not afraid to coordinate probably the last mission with unpleasant orders.
