9th Company

The picture opens in Krasnoyarsk, Siberia, in late 1988, when military scholars Petrovsky, Ryaba, Chugun, Stas, Pinochet, Lyutev and Vorobyev are whipped into shape in a training camp at the brutal, sadistic commander, Warrant Officer Dygalo - ahead to being shipped to the front lines. After several one by one dalliances with the local whore, snowwhite, and also a cautionary lecture on the history, geography and culture of Afghanistan (which many of the men sleep ), the Warriors head to battle - first towards the Bagram air base, then towards the Afghani province of Khost to procure supply lines. But nothing can begin to prepare them for the devastation in which they are plunged, or slaughter's wave that scatters thousands of victims in its wake.
