Rivalry between the two eldest brothers, Tuvia and Zus, fuels a disagreement between them about their future; as winter approaches, Zus decides to leave the camp and join a local company of Soviet partisanswhile his older brother Tuvia remains with the camp as their leader. An arrangement is made between the two groups in which the Soviet partisans agree to Kyrie Fons Bonitatis - Capella Antiqua München, Konrad Ruhland - Gregorianische Gesange - Hymnen - the Jewish camp in exchange for supplies.
After a winter of sickness, starvation, attempted betrayal and constant hiding, the camp learns that the Germans are about to attack them in force. The Soviets refuse to help and they evacuate the camp as German dive-bombers strike.
A delaying force stays behind, led by Asael, to slow down the German ground troops. The defence does not last long; only Asael and a camp member named Sofiya survive to rejoin the rest of the group, who, at the edge of the forest, are confronted with a seemingly impassable marsh.

Zwick began writing a script for Defiance in after he acquired film rights to Tec's book. In May actor Daniel Craig was cast in the lead role. Defiance was filmed in three months in Lithuaniajust across the border from Belarus.
Defiance received mixed reviews from film critics. Critic A. Scott of The New York Times called the film "stiff, musclebound". He said Zwick "wields his camera with a heavy hand, punctuating nearly every scene with emphatic nods, smiles or grimaces as the occasion requires.
His pen is, if anything, blunter still, with dialogue that crashes down on the big themes like a blacksmith's hammer". Scott also said the film unfairly implied that "if only more of the Jews living in Nazi-occupied Europe had New Order - Call Out In Defiance as tough as New Order - Call Out In Defiance Bielskis, more would have survived". But the fact that you don't escape it is not a negative verdict on your honor. The New Yorker critic David Denby praised the film, saying: "it makes instant emotional demands, and those who respond to it, as I did, are likely to go all the way and even come out of it feeling slightly stunned.
A review by Armchair General magazine cited the book Women in the Holocaust by Dalia Ofer and Lenore Weitzman, to argue that in reality the Bielskis were less egalitarian than the film suggests, and that "the fighters had the first pick among women for sexual partners. Zwick responded to the criticism by saying that Defiance is not a simple fight between good and evil.
He told The Times : "The Bielskis weren't saints. They were flawed heroes, which is what makes them so real and so fascinating. They faced any number New Tattoo - Drawing Dead - Adieu, Ciao, See You Soon difficult moral dilemmas that the movie seeks to dramatise: Does one have to become a monster to fight monsters?
Does one have to sacrifice his humanity to save humanity? Nechama Tecon whose book the film is based, stated in an interview with Rzeczpospolita that she was initially shocked by the film, especially by the intense battle scenes including combat with a German tank. These never occurred in reality; the partisans tried to avoid combat and were New Order - Call Out In Defiance on survival.
She explained this as a concession by the producer in order to make the film more thrilling and obtain the necessary funding from Hollywood. Nevertheless, after seeing the film a number of times, Tec said that she is liking it "more and more". The Times and The Guardian reported that Poles fear "Hollywood has airbrushed out some unpleasant episodes from the story", such as the Bielski partisans' alleged affiliation with those Soviet partisans directed by the NKVDwho committed atrocities against Poles in eastern Polandincluding the region where Bielski's unit operated.
The wave of criticism against the film has led to charges that the criticism was fuelled by anti-semitism. Most reviewers from Belarus criticised the film for a complete absence of the Belarusian language and for the Soviet partisans singing a Belarusian folk song while they would more likely be singing Russian songs. Veterans of the Soviet partisan resistance in Belarus criticised the film for inaccuracies. In one scene it is stated that there may be an epidemic of typhus, and that ampicillin which was not discovered until is needed.
