A group of friends goes up the top of a mountain in a cable car on New Year’s Eve. Their plan is to go down celebrating New Year and viewing spectacular fireworks from above at midnight. Their adventure turns into a real nightmare when, in the middle of the celebration, the rickety carriage gets stuck over the abyss.
1988-1989. The end of the Soviet-Afghan war. The USSR begins its withdrawal from Afghanistan. Soviet General Vasiliev's son - a pilot named Alexander gets kidnapped by the mujahideen after his airplane crashes. As a result the 108th motorized infantry division's long awaited return home gets put on hold for one last mission: bring the General's son back. Based on true events the previously untold story of the courageous and tragic withdrawal campaign (through the Salang pass) reveals the danger the horror and the complexity of human nature during wartime.
