Russia, 1943. A girl from Leningrad and a soldier from Venice stand together on the edge of wilderness.

Its memory will nourish him, keep him alive, on his long journey home to Italy.But when he returns, he must decide which path to take - to be true to the love of the girl who saved his life, or to pursue hisunfulfilled vow and seek revenge on the man who had ruined his home and his family.
