A reliable and poignant story about what the children and teenagers of besieged Leningrad experienced. 14 surviving heroes and several dozens of those for whom only the lines of diaries and captions to children's drawings can now speak, word by word, minute by minute, story by story, revive the memory of the siege. What did the people in the besieged city really feel? What of what we know about the blockade is true, and what is a myth, a stamp from a history textbook? The authors of the film, with the help of video comparisons-reconstructions, return modern St. Petersburg to the terrible time of the blockade, connecting history with the moment. This film is a memory and a film about memory. About how it is set up. About those thanks to whom it can, must be preserved.
