      Based on the novel by Y. Bondarev. The film tells about one of the heroic and tragic episodes of the bloody Battle of Stalingrad, in which the steadfastness and fortitude of Russian soldiers who defended their native land were fully manifested.

      From the imdb (rated 6.9) description:

      In November, 1942, near the Volga, Stanlingrad is under siege of Commander Friederich Paulus and his 330,000 men. The Soviet high command unleashes an operation to protect the Mishkova River to avoid that about four hundred tanks join Paulus’ army. The Soviet artillery soldiers protect their position with their lives in a bloodshed with few survivors.
