A village in the countryside during winter. CUs of dilapidated icons, a boot, an abandoned house. MCU, peasant woman with tag around her neck, standing in a clearing with a child. She looks directly at the camera. People sit in what appears to be a movie theater, watching the woman and her child. That is reinforced with a second cut back and forth. A child on a stretcher, being carried out by soldiers - the children are being rescued from a cave. They were hiding in the town of Velikaya Lepetikha, in the Zaporozhie region of the Ukraine.
Russian title reads: "Liberated children. Velikaya Lepetikha. February, 1944."
