Storyline

Based on a true story. Two fighters of 'Donbas' Volunteer Battalion get locked inside city of Ilovaysk after regular Russian army enters Ukraine and shells the surrounded divisions of Ukrainian Army in the infamous would-be 'green corridor'. The fighters survive thanks to the help of the locals and manage to break out through the front line to reach the freed territory. Taras Kostanchuk who is playing himself as 'Beshoot' is that same Donbas commander who is the prototype of the story. Half of the actors and extras are real 'Donbas' volunteers who survived the battle.

True story of Russian aggression in Ukraine
7 September 2019 | by cherrynatiSee all my reviews

It is difficult to watch as Russian aggression is not over in Ukraine ( it's very sad that so many Ukrainians were killed by Russian military on their own Ukrainian land! It is even more disturbing that too many Ukrainian citizens are influenced by Russian paid propaganda! Maybe watching this movie will open their eyes ... The movie itself is interesting, qualitative, impressive, and touching to tears!
