The film tells about the three-week resistance of a crew from mine-sweeper with the same name during the events in the Crimea in 2014. However, due to the COVID pandemic Cherkasy theatrical distribution was cut short, and only in July, after the lockdown measures were relaxed, the theatrical screenings of the film were resumed.
