Plot summary[edit]

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. Anka, a local girl, forges a relationship with a German POW. The film criticises war profiteers and encourages workers to reach across national lines. In 1917 the Russian Revolution comes.
