This excellent documentary film confronts and exposes the experiences of the last surviving Slovak slave laborers who, despite all odds, miraculously survived the Stalinist labor camps. The film follows their cruel fate from their arrest until their release and return, when constantly surrounded by hostilities and death under dehumanizing conditions in the harsh, unforgiving natural environment.
In Slovak with English subtitles.
