As the Nazis penetrate ever further into his country, Byelorussian peasant boy Florya discovers a buried German rifle and leaves home to join the army. But as he witnesses atrocities first hand his innocence is shattered and very nearly his sanity.
A relentless masterpiece, and a brilliant study of the cause and effect nature of brutality.
