It is rough for them and one day Aron runs off and his family don't know where he is but he is messing around with ants. He finds other people and a bunch of dead people in a pit. There is a injured child with the group of people and Tuvia goes and asks a friend for food and a pistol. His name is Koscik and he helps them out. While Tuvia is at his house, Germans pull up to the house and he must hide. There is another group hiding there and Koscik tells Tuvia, they must with him. Zus and a few other start to kill Germans in the night. Asael gets chased by the Germans and the rest of the group must leave him behind. The people start building homes in the woods so they have shelter. Asael makes it back to the group. There are more and more people who are entering the "community". Everyone is taught how to fight and fire guns. They also work on other stuff.
Winter comes and Asael gets married to a woman he likes. Everyone is getting stronger and better with fighting Germans. Eventually all the people from the group turn into an army. Zus takes a bullet and he is not looking too well. The Jews end up getting a prisoner and find out a division of Germans are to surround the forest. Some of the Jewish people beat him up because they are upset about what happened. There is a plain that passes over the forest and people are not sure if it saw them or not. So what they do is gather everyone up and prepare to move. But before they get the chance to, they are bombed. The survivors move to find shelter and Asael stays back to help hold them off. His wife wants to stay and help but it is too dangerous for her to stay. No one arrives and then the Jewish people must go through a swamp before it is too late. They use belts to stay together going through the swamps. Then comes the time that they must fight or die.
In the end it says they lived in the forest for two more years where built school, hospital and nursery. By the wars end, 1200 had survived. I can't believe that this movie was based on real life events and this actually happened. If you like war movies, then watch this one because this one is a really good one. There are some happy parts and some sad parts. I enjoyed this movie a lot.
