It is a story of a 10-year boy who was killed in the war of 1941-1945.

The video shows a group of present-day schoolchildren who suddenly see the ghost-boy wearing a Soviet military uniform in front of them.
The boy tells them how his family got killed during the Second World War and he worked at a plant casting shells and projectiles for the Soviet soldiers who fought on the frontline.

The schoolchildren argue the shells are too heavy for a child, and the ghost-boy replies: "Well, yes, but we were proud to know that our shells helped our soldiers fight German troops."
