“Sadly, but the topic of Nazism and genocide will be always relevant”, – says Konstantin Khabensky. – We see that people hate and kill each other because of the “wrong” language, faith, skin color, eyes shape. Nazism is a maximum level of evil. It is the rebellion to such pure evil that gives rise to heroism that remains forever. One of such heroes was Alexander Pechersky”.
Konstantin Khabensky played the main character of the film and also debuted in it as a director. The cast of the film is represented by the famous international talents — Christopher Lambert, Mariya Kozhevnikova, Felice Jankell, Michalina Olszanska, Philippe Reinhardt, Gela Meskhi and others.

The film was produced by the company Cinema Production and «Fetisoff Illusion» with the support of Alexander Pechersky Foundation.
