The winter of 1941. Among the German troops, the word is circulated about a Soviet soldier, a loner, who appears out of thin air and kills the soldiers of Wermacht. It is impossible to kill that man or at least take him captive. The Germans need to destroy him and allay the myth about the invincible Red Army. But again and again the Russian avenger slips away from their hands. The Germans dubbed him Red Ghost. A special death-squad is sent to eliminate him. At the same time, a small group of Russian warrors, trying to break through the encirclement near village Vyazma (The Vyazma Cauldron), stop for a rest in an abandoned hamlet. By a fateful twist, this is exactly where comes the death-squad. But soon they are to deal with the Red Ghost.
