Mes čia esam ne žūti, o žudyti.

In June, 1941 Finland has little choice but to ally itself with Nazi Germany against its traditional foe. Virtually unknown in the WWII arena, this brutal war against Soviet occupation takes place in the Far North. As the men of a Finnish infantry unit march through the forests of Karelia to regain territory lost to Russia in the Winter War of 1939, each of them soon realizes the horror and pointlessness of war.
