Let’s Play War


Let’s Play War

While there are less and less World War II veterans among the living, the battles of this war keep reoccurring on different battlegrounds in the Eastern territories of contemporary Europe. Young Estonian men Andrey and Reimo have gotten killed several times in these fights. Each time they resurrect, because these are the rules of the game they play along with their comrades from a military club “Frontline”. Enthusiasts of different nationalities join such clubs out of their appreciation for the memory of WWII as well as their love of the hobby of reconstructing in detail the soldiers’ lifestyle of the era. SS-Untersturmführer Reimo leads the 20th division of Waffen-SS, Sergeant Andrey marches in advance of the Red Army’s 11th Rifle Division. The fight for history goes on with arms in young men’s hands.
