It is a period of Civil War. Former Imperial Russian Army Pvt Bumbarash was a prisoner of war to Austria,[citation needed] but now is returning to his home village, where all, including his beloved girlfriend, believe he is dead.

The rule in the village is periodically changing between White, Bolshevik Red and then, the "bandits".
