Filmed in Europe and given a limited theatrical release, the film recounts the mass murders in September 1941 of thousands of Jews, Soviet POWs, communists, Gypsies (Romani people) and civilian hostages by German SS Divisions and Ukrainian nationalists in the title location, a ravine in Kiev (the capital of Ukraine).[2]
