A story about people of strong spirit, heroes who live among us and about a feat done for each of us. In the center of the story are two main characters – lieutenant colonel Soshnikov and captain Muravyov. Two different characters, two different destinies destined to meet at the Khmeimim military base. During the combat flight, a Turkish fighter shot down Soshnikov’s plane. This event was covered by all the world’s media, and the whole of Russia followed the course of the rescue operation. Oleg Soshnikov and co-pilot Konstantin Muravyov managed to eject, but only one soldier was destined to return home alive.
