1941: Second lieutenant Ivushkin who just graduated from tank academy and was sent to the war zone, is charged with a suicidal mission – with one T-34 tank and a small crew he must stop a dozen of top-notch German tanks from attacking a nearby city. Miraculously, he succeeds but gets captured.
1944: Ivushkin is confined in a concentration camp in Germany where he has been for all those years. Wermacht establishes a new training center for its elite armored forces using the latest T-34 as a running target. Ivushkin is offered to become the commander who operates that T-34 and pick his crew from fellow camp prisoners.
He agrees only because he has a much bigger plan in mind – a daring and carefully planned escape that would have seemed impossible. Those were the times of unforgettable bravery, fierce fighting, unbreakable love, and legendary miracles.
