Young Guard Reborn

Donbass youth on the defence of their motherland again

The Young Guard was a famous WWII underground organisation, whose members resisted Nazi occupiers in Donbass in 1942. They were only teenagers, some of them as young as 14. The story of their heroic feat became one of the most popular novels in the Soviet Union that inspired generations. In 2014, Krasnodon locals raised in the traditions of the Young Guard had to defend their home too. The documentary tells the stories of young Donbass residents who took up arms despite their young age.
