Outskirts (Russian: Окраина, meaning Outskirts), also known in English as The Patriots or by the transliterated Russian title Okraina, is a 1933 Soviet film directed by Boris Barnet.
1914. In a small town in a remote part of the Russian Empire, shoemakers struggle to organise against factory owners. When war comes, they are united as soldiers of the Tsar on the Eastern Front.
