Synopsis

In June, 1944, the Soviet troops encircled the 53rd Army Corps of General Gollwitzer near Vitebsk. The Germans stood on the defensive bitterly. After one of the local battle the stricken Soviet tank is inside the German group. The gunner and wounded in the leg mechanic-driver Naydenov hardly get out of the burning «thirty-four». Our soldiers could not even think that they would be in the encirclement of already encircled Germans! The situation is hopeless, the way to Soviet army is cut off… But Naydenov almost losing consciousness gets to the positions of Soviet troops.
