1989. The end of the Soviet-Afghan war. The USSR begins to withdraw its troops from Afghanistan.

Soviet General Vasilyev’s son – a pilot named Alexander – is kidnapped by the Mujahideen after his airplane crashes. As a result, the 108th Motor Rifle Division’s long awaited return home is put on hold for one last mission: bring the General’s son back.

Based on true events, the previously untold story of this tragic withdrawal reveals the complexity of human nature during wartime.
