During the Great Patriotic War, the guerrilla captain Sotnikov and the soldier Rybakov were captured by the Germans during a mission. Sotnikov withstood the test, was brave and unyielding, and finally sacrificed; Rybakov was afraid of being punished, expressed his obedience, and became a pseudo-police. It turned out that he also wanted to delay the time and escape. But as a result, step by step, it became deeper and deeper, unable to extricate itself, and finally cut itself off from the people   .

The Ascent quotes

  • Sotnikov: [Imprisoned, Sotnikov and Rybak are arguing whether to speak with Germans or not] We're soldiers. Soldiers. Don't crawl in shit. You'll never wash it off.

    Rybak: So then, to the grave - to feed the worms. Right?

    Sotnikov: That's not the worst that could happen. No. That's not what I'm talking about. Now I understand. I understand. The important thing is to be true to yourself.

    Rybak: Fool! You're a fool, Sotnikov. You graduated from the institute for nothing. I want to live! To live! To kill those bastards! Understand? I'm the soldier. And you're a corpse. All you've got left is your stubbornness - your principles!

    Sotnikov: Then go, go on living - without a conscience. It can be done.

  • Portnov, the Nazi interrogator: You want to save the woman without giving up anything? That won't work. You'll have to trouble your conscience. One way or the other, you'll have to. There's no way out. None.

    Sotnikov: I won't betray anyone. Not anyone. There are things more important than one's own hide.

    Portnov, the Nazi interrogator: [laughs] Where? What is it? What's it made of? That's nonsense. We're mortal. With death, everything ends for up, all of life. The entire world. It's not worth it. For what? As an example for future generations? But you won't have a heroic death, either. You won't just die. You'll croak like a traitor. And if you won't tell, someone else will. And we'll write it off to you. Understand?

    Sotnikov: Scum. Human scum.
