Synopsis

Russian war drama based on events which took place during the war with Afghanistan in the 1980s. Journalist Charlie Palmer (Barry Kushner) and medic Victor Davis (Victor Verzhbitski) arrive at a P.O.W. camp near the Afghanistan/Pakistan border in order to document the sub-human conditions which the prisoners are forced to endure. During their visit, the prisoners seize control of the camp and begin to enact a series of terrible and bloody punishments on their captors. Held as hostages, Palmer and Davis are forced to witness acts of barbarity unlike any they have ever seen before.
