The life of little Anya flows measuredly and happily. In the summer - in the village, with blueberry glades, and tall pines and a warm lake. And in the winter in Moscow, with the Tretyakov Gallery and gifts from the Children's World. But one day this life ends. Anna now lives in New York.

In 1942, an eighteen-year-old boy, Victor Astafyev, volunteered for the front. He served on the front line, suffered several serious wounds, was awarded the Order of the Red Star and the medal 'For Courage', was discharged in 1945 with the rank of 'ordinary'. The war, seen through the eyes of a simple soldier - one of hundreds of thousands who, in inhuman conditions, daily fight with death - is the central theme in the work of the outstanding Russian writer Viktor Astafyev.
