    The USSR, late 1980s. After several months of bootcamp, seven young recruits to the Soviet army are thrown into the slaughterhouse of the Afghan campaign. The troops receive an order from headquarters: seize an area and hold it at all costs, allowing a military convoy to pass through. Vastly outmatched, the reinforcements never arrive, and the valiant members of the 9th Company fall. Their leader is the sole survivor. Later he will find out that the war is over, and that their commanders simply forgot about the stranded group of soldiers, fighting for their life with their last strength…
