The story of a simple Russian youth who goes to the frontline in the First World War with the naïve and youthful dream of glory and medals. In the first battle he loses his eyesight and is left to serve as “listener-in” — to listen out for the approach of enemy planes through huge metal funnels and raise alarm.
