Two Chinese students studying in Moscow at the outbreak of World War II are caught up in the cruelties of war when the Nazis invade Russia. Chuchu, a 13-year-old girl, is captured when the German forces occupy her youth summer camp. Back in Moscow, Luo, a 12-year-old boy, delivers casualty reports to Russian soldiers' families. This heartbreaking true story uses Mandarin, Russian and German dialogue to convey a sense of realism.
