Based on true events that took place in the vicinity of Līvāni in 1945 after Soviet re-occupation. Catholic priest Antons Juhņevičs, serving in the Vanagi parish, hid local men on church premises so they could escape conscription into the Red Army. Finding himself in conflict with the ruling power due to his convictions, he was forced to take a radical step. Faithfulness and heroism so closely followed by betrayal and cowardice, or a simple wish to survive – all of this is present in the fates of Antons Juhņevičs and his companions-in-arms.
