Synopsis / Plot
The film is centered around a 12 year old Russian boy, Ivan, whose parents died at the hands of Germans invading Russia during the Second World War. In striving single-mindedly to avenge their deaths, he lives the life of a homeless orphan. Sometimes he joins partisans and at other times he is with the Russian Army, but he is always adamant to fight on the front line, and he takes advantage of his small size to get reconnaissance jobs for which grownups would be unsuitable.
