The year is 1921. The Russian Civil War is slowly drawing to its inevitable end and the Party has sent out its most experienced fighters to learn how to build and manage the new Soviet state. But the town, in which these men have gathered, has become the target of anti-Soviet gangs preparing to go on the attack. Among those sent here to learn, there are different ideas as to how to run the new state and it soon develops that the White counterrevolutionaries aren't their only worry.

DVD-R is in Russian with switchable English subtitles.  Approx. 73 mins. + a 42 min. supplement of Soviet newsreels from the 1920s.   Very good quality overall  (see film sample below!).
