The "Twenty Days Without War" describes the life of Major Lopatin (actor Yuri Nikulin (1921-1997)), military journalist during World War II, who went to his hometown of Tashkent (Uzbekistan) in Middle Asia at the end of 1942 to spend a 20-day leave following the Battle of Stalingrad and to see the shooting of a film based on his wartime articles he has written, and where he was romantically involved with woman, played by the talented actress Ludmila Gurchenko (1935-2011).

The "Twenty Days Without War" shows how romantic views of combat held on the home front are far different from the harsh realities of front line warfare. In the film, he realizes that the romanticized views of warfare on the home front are vastly different from the realities he has encountered.

The film is based on the novel and screenplay of Konstantin Simonov (1915-1979), very famous military journalist who wrote the famous poem "Wait for me" in 1941. The film is mostly shot in black and white, or very muted color, as looking aged to be visually close to that wartime.
