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.
