On the Don, when there was a turning point in World War II, the Italians were at the center of events, they had to defend themselves and retreat. Together with the great German army, they advanced at the beginning of the war east, to Moscow. The Germans did their best to save the situation, throwing more and more reserves, not sparing the Italian soldiers. They treated them as unnecessary animals, leaving them off the road, leaving them without food and warmth. Among the retreating was the foreman Gabrielli — the main character, he will no longer be destined to see his homeland, he will freeze in the field.
