Synopsis

An epic periodic drama commemorating 100 years October Revolution based on the famous novel of Alexey Tolstoy.  A magnificent production capturing the atmosphere of the rioting Saint Petersburg, the sentiments and the views of the creative and social elites of that time, which supported and, in many ways, made the revolution come true. The Russian history in the years 1914-1919 is reflected through the story of two sisters, overcoming the hardships of the World War I, the Revolution and the Civil War. The national tragedy turns for the sisters into a personal tragedy. The expectations of better tomorrow, for which is paid in blood, turn to be for the characters a road to Calvary.
