what going on?


Tomorrow Was the War is an exquisite drama about the life of Soviet schoolchildren during the last quiet days before WWII.

The film centers around the lives of two tenth graders in a provincial Soviet city. The two, Iskra Polyakova and Zina Kovalenko, are best friends and are seemingly living their best lives.

They each pursue their own paths. Zina is a romantic who loves the poetry of Ysenin. Meanwhile, Iskra is utterly devoted to the Komsomol.

However, things quickly change when Zina’s father, a hitherto celebrated aircraft designer, is accused of anti-communist activities. Zina herself then tragically commits suicide.

After this, we see how Iskra’s naivety and innocence is lost, just like her entire generation’s would be the following year with the outbreak of WWII.
