"A story based on real events that laid the foundation for the great Road of Life – the ice road winter transport route across the frozen Lake Ladoga, which provided the only access to the city of Leningrad besieged by German and Finnish Nazis.The siege lasted over three long years during which over one million citizens of Leningrad died from starvation, cold and bombardments! Each winter, the Lake Ladoga ice route was reconstructed by hand, and built according to precise arithmetic calculations depending on traffic volume. In addition to transporting thousands of tons of munitions and food supplies each year, the Road of Life also served as the primary evacuation route for the millions of Russians trapped within the starving hero city"

I gotta admit that I liked the scenes of the boat being strafed without a single CGI, or real, plane in sight. Added to the realism/tension.
