The action of this work takes place in the inn on the outskirts of a Ukrainian town near the border with Romania, at the end of the summer of 1918, when the country is immersed in a civil war. The Bolsheviks have seized power and imposed a regime that heavily taxes the peasants. As a consequence, famine and war force many people to leave the country. To make matters worse, the Soviet Commissioner Pedro Stakof, identified with the new regime, is a noble person and capable of falling in love with Katiuska: a lost young woman that the Prince has found in the snow and whose origin is unknown… Only the memories of her childhood comes to her in the form of a dream.
Prince Sergio and the nobles are going to flee thanks to the safe-conduct that Commissioner Pedro has signed. But, there is still more, to eliminate the evidence of treason, the Kiev High Commissioner tears up the safe-conduct and asks the soldiers to accompany the fugitives to the border… We don’t know if to save themselves or to die.
A story in dramatic form that contains a deep message about the class struggle, about duty and honor, about power and love.
