Sinopsis / Synopsis:

The film is based on a Soviet propaganda story (most likely not too accurate) about “Young Pioneer” Morozov, who denounced his father to Stalin’s secret police and was in turn killed by his family. His life exemplified the only moral duty of all good Soviet citizens: the good of the state is of utmost importance. In the Soviet Union this story was a subject of many books, songs, plays, a symphonic poem, opera and also the basis of Bezhin Meadow’s unreleased film from 1937 that was directed by Sergei Eisenstein and ended in catastrophe.
