Synopsis

During World War II, a young Soviet lieutenant who was wounded at the front, is sent to the Arkhangelsk region in northern Russia to supervise the construction of the strategic military radio tower. Moments before he departs, he learns that the tower will be built by German POWs. He has just a couple of days -- the length of the train journey to his destination -- to overcome his hatred and contempt for the POWs. When he arrives in the village, the locals (mainly women whose fathers, husbands and sons have gone to war) are strongly hostile to the Germans and the officer faces the challenging task of becoming a fair and unbiased arbiter between the two sides.
