In the film, experts from different countries not only explain the causes of the famine, they talk about humanity, which erased the boundaries between states and peoples. The Nansen Mission, the American ARA, the English Quakers, and several dozen other organizations, which worked in Soviet Russia at the time, helped people survive, and the Soviet government was grateful for the help. The famine of the 1920s became one of the first symbols of the international struggle for life. Therefore, the film is not only the story of political decisions, it is, first and foremost, the story of humanism, which should not be forgotten.
