The Leningrad olive trees



One soldier of the Red Army is waiting to kill a nazi soldier in the outskirts of Leningrad. The nazi is hidden in a hole. The hours go by and suddenly the German soldier exclaims: “Qué frío, coño!”. Since that moment, they start chatting. It turns out that the Soviet is a Spanish communist partisan who fled from Malaga and the German is a volunteer of the Spanish Blue Division. They both are from the same town. They know each other since childhood and now they meet in the Russian winter. Both of them decide to continue together in the war.
