Leningrad, 1942. Three teenagers struggle to survive the savage wartime siege that claimed over two million lives. Through their sufferings, a powerful bond of love is forged between them. The war in which they lost everything but each other shadows their lives decades later as allegiances shift, love falters and their vow of solidarity is stretched to its limit. Aleksei Arbuzov's 1965 play depicts a daring preview of the disillusionment that finally tore apart the Soviet Union.
