The stories of soldiers who fought in the Caucasus conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan reveal facets of a war insufficiently covered by the international press.
The film is made up of interviews with young Armenian soldiers who fought in the Nagorno-Karabakh autonomous region, alternating with evocative footage from the front. The testimonies are candid, made up of seemingly unimportant details such as tins of food, thoughts of those left behind at home, the fear felt on the battlefield. However, the soldiers' outlook on life changes after taking an active part in a war. The documentary creates a realistic picture of war that is not characterised by heroism, but rather by small, seemingly anodyne things.
