"The film, which has a USA distributor already, will hit Russian cinemas in November. The film centers on an IL-2 pilot, played by Pyotr Fyodorov (from Duelist, Stalingrad, Sputnik, Blackout), who, back in December of 1941, crash lands in a remote forest clearing after an air assault, and must find his way back to friendly territory while battling hunger and extreme cold and evading packs of wolves and Nazi soldiers. It is a gripping story of survival, bravery and sacrifice in the face of chilling circumstances, made even more riveting due to its depiction of actual historical events."

I'm in. A film depicting a Nazi getting his arm blow off is worth a couple of hours of my time.

The plot is based on the real story of the Soviet pilot Aleksey Maresyev.
Fighter pilot, his plane was seriously damaged in an air battle on April 5, 1942 in the North of Russia. While trying to land the damaged plane fell to the ground from a height of 30 meters. He survived, but injured both legs. For eighteen days walk to the nearest settlement on Soviet territory. The night temperature reached -20 * C during this period.
He froze both legs, got gangrene. He was operated on, both legs were amputated in the lower leg area. He obtained permission to fly using prostheses and was sent to train pilots at a flight school. After initial repeated unsuccessful attempts, he still managed to get sent to the front. The first sortie took place in July 1943.
During the war, he shot down seven enemy aircraft – four before the amputation of the two legs and three after.
Received the title of Hero of the Soviet Union.
