This is a film about the courage and heroism, about the courage and perseverance of Russian officers who, despite all the difficulties of the nineties, did not betray themselves and their Homeland. This story is dedicated to soldiers who did not change their duty, honor and oath. The story of those who are ready to go to the end for the sake of their Fatherland....

In the center of the story are three main characters – Lieutenant Colonel Soshnikov (45 years old, prototype pilot Oleg Peshkov), captain Muravyov (25 years old prototype Navigator Murakhtin) and major Zakharov, 35 years old (a collective image of a Special Operations officer). Three ages, three different characters, three different fates, destined to converge on the military base Hamim.

The main characters will meet for the first time in the Crimea in a survival training camp for pilots. Young, bold and sharp-tongued Muravyov, in contrast to his balanced and solid senior comrade in the air regiment Soshnikov, immediately disliked the instructor Zakharov. His peremptory way of talking annoyed the young captain. The commando responds with "reciprocation". The trio will meet for the second time in the Syrian Republic.

The plot of the film is an artistically meaningful story of the stay of our armed forces in Syria, episodes of the war with ISIL (an international terrorist organization banned on the territory of the Russian Federation) and an operation to rescue a Navigator who, as a result of an attack on our plane, landed on enemy territory.

The film tells in detail about the events that took place on November 24, 2015, a little more than two months after the stay of our Armed Forces in friendly Syria.
