End of 1918. A small group of soldiers returns from the Western Front. Yesterday’s schoolchildren, still just boys. They so dreamed of a peaceful life sitting in the trenches. And here they are again at home. Only everything here has become alien and unfamiliar to them. Now they have to learn to live anew. It turns out that this is not easy at all, especially when everything that previously seemed important and significant now has absolutely no value …
