An outdoor scene of slaughter during war. Multiple dead bodies lay on the ground. In the foreground a woman looks down on a corpse and sobs, her body bent over with grief. A man and a women in winter clothing stand next to her with unreadable expressions. The ground is muddy and there are pools of bloods.
