This patriotic story is set in 1941 at harvest time in a bucolic Russian village -- someone is in the process of setting up a pole to support the loudspeaker that will transmit radio broadcasts, another is making plans for the coming spring, and a family of father, mother (pregnant with her third child), and elderly grandmother are taking care of their modest farm. The next thing anyone knows, a man on horseback arrives to announce that the Germans have invaded the Soviet Union, and before dreams of the future can be realized, the men of the village have been drafted and are heading out to battle.
