"Deservedly regarded as one of the finest Soviet war movies....Chukhrai stages this with a quiet, understated lyricism...."

Plot Synopsis:

A touching WWII story of a reluctant young hero who, when given leave from the front, sets out to see his mother and fix up the roof of their house.

He finally arrives home with only enough time to look at his mother before he has to turn around and go back to the front.
