Synopsis: Documentary on the last surviving Slovak, Russian and American veterans of the Second World War. Their fates represent a stirring tale of a struggle for survival, a struggle with fear and desperation that took all of their strength. It tells of their refusal to admit the hopelessness of their situation, as well as of their resolve to confront it with dignity and self -respect.
For them, it’s as if the war never ended. It has been with them all their lives.
