The lyrics of the song, familiar from childhood, were able to unite memories, personal stories, the bitterness of losses of people from 20 countries in a single war album.
 
In the hands of the video participants are portraits of their fathers, grandfathers, great-grandfathers, and, of course, red carnations. The red thread symbol of victory passes through the whole video, reminding the chronology of the Great Patriotic War.
 
One of the first battles of the Great Patriotic War took place near the Brest Fortress walls. It is with the laying of flowers in Belarus and begins video.
