At the end of November 1939, Finland was in the toughest place in its history. That was when the Winter War began. Countless books and articles have been written about the events of the Winter War, and several films have been made. The battle of Pelkosenniemi in December 1939 has received less attention.
The film has been directed and written by Martij Takalo, a teacher from Saarijärvi. In connection with the events of the war, Martin has been assisted by the trainer of the People's Bible Society, Captain evp. Olli Seppänen.
