For most Russians 1812 is associated with the Patriotic War against Napoleon's Great Army. It was praised by historians, writers, painters and composers of the time. At the same time the war with Persia was left in the shadow. This war broke out in the south of the country from 1804 to 1813 and largely predetermined the future of the region and the Caucasian peoples. The documentary by Sergey Sarkisov and Grigory Nakhapetov is about this war and its forgotten heroes.
