The war in Ukraine has been going on for five years, and there are many citizens who want to do something for their country. The right-wing Azov Regiment offers training for citizen militias, partly through summer camps for thousands of children. The film follows two of the star candidates.
Director Moritz Schulz was allowed to film in the camp without restrictions for two weeks. That is plenty of time to show that these soldiers of the future are really just children: kids who want to play, chat or fool around. But Schulz puts his finger on the sore spot when he shows them calling home and expressing their doubts, or even crying.
The film will be introduced by an expert.
