It's June 1941. In Finland, a machine gun company is deployed from its barracks to prepare for the invasion of the Soviet Union. Crossing the old border lost during the Winter War, the band of men engage in increasingly guerilla tactics as their advance on Soviet positions spills more and more into local cities, and the distinction between enemy and civilian starts to blur. Embedding themselves within hostile territories, the threat of ambush on all fronts tests the limits of their courage, discipline and moral code. As the company's ranks deplete, the tension between them augments. 'Unknown Soldier' is a testament to their sacrifice in World War II and to the human suffering of a universal soldier. It is a part of history that is rarely spoken about, and a part of history that should never be forgotten.
