Battalion

This film aims to become a tribute to the bravery of the female soldiers from the Russian Women's Battalion, formed in Saint-Petersburg in 1917, following an order from the Provisional Government. Such battalions served two main goals: raising the army morale and chastising the male soldiers, who were reluctant to fight in the war.
