It tells the stories of officers and soldiers serving in various units of the Soviet Armed Forces just prior to their withdrawal from Afghanistan, after the signing of the Geneva Accords.
The 40 minute film includes combat missions with the Spetsnaz elite units, never before filmed by a Western crew. It also shows helicopter gunship pilots from a Kabul-based Air Assault Unit flying missions, the patrolling of the Salang mountain pass and the military hospital in Kabul.
Soviet General Lev Serebrov referred to the making of the film as "An experiment in glasnost".
The film won the Blue Ribbon at the American Film & Video Festival.
The film is part of Harmon's "Afghan Trilogy", which also included the documentaries “Jihad” and “Warlord of Kayan”.
