On June 22, 2021, Russia froze in a tragic memory of the dawn of the year 1941. The metronome counted 80 years. The date that united the people 80 years ago still unites a divided society today. But war, like any great tragedy, breaks up into faces and destinies. Sometimes individual, and sometimes entire nations. This is a film about the war and people of art, who also fought for victory with their creativity. All of them come from the small Russian town of Nevel, but many of them were waiting for world fame, and today their names are inscribed in the history of Russian culture. Among the heroes of the film are the famous pianist Maria Yudina, the poet Boris Pasternak, the writer Tamara Petkevich, front-line cameramen, the Hero of the Soviet Union Manshuk Mametova, the daughter of an enemy of the people, and many others.
