March 1945. In a harsh winter, a brigade of 500 partisans retreats to the high plateau of Menina Planina after finding themselves surrounded by a 12,000-soldier SS division in the valleys below. Sheltered by forests, they build a makeshift camp, exhausted, starved, freezing, malnourished, and dispirited. Commander Franc Sever ‘Franta’ is faced with an impossible task: to get his soldiers out. After a bloody battle, they manage to break the enemy ring and fight their way to freedom.

Filmi z majhnimi tržišči težko preživijo brez podpore javnih sredstev, a režiser Dejan Babosek s svojo filmografijo vedno znova dokazuje, da je zavidljiv celovečerni izdelek mogoče posneti tudi s povsem neodvisnimi prijemi. Preboj s svojim modelom neodvisnega financiranja predstavlja zgleden primer alternativne filmske produkcije pri nas in mu žirija za to podeljuje vesno za posebne dosežke.
