DECIMATION

DECIMATION

Format: Period Narrative Drama
Status: Festival Release

Set in 1942, DECIMATION finds ten Russian soldiers who have been accused of cowardice on the Eastern Front and are being temporarily imprisoned. A Red Army General decides to utilize the ancient Roman punishment of decimation, where one soldier is drawn at random and the other nine serve as his executioner.

The men are notified of their punishment at dusk, and by dawn, they will either meet their maker or be forced to take a friend’s life before returning to the front line. The film chronicles the men’s last traumatic hours before the execution, revealing the horrors of war, their collective experiences, and their dreams for a normal post-war life.

Filmed in collaboration with Legacy Pictures and Kris Kidd Productions.
