Loosely based on the life of Russian silent screen star Vera Kholodnaya, this film explores a woman's political awakening during the Russian Civil War. After the Bolsheviks take Moscow, a film crew moves to Odessa to continue work. Olga Voznesenskaya, the film's star, falls for the cameraman, a revolutionary secretly filming White Army atrocities. After his death, Olga commits to publicizing her lover's work and exposing crimes against the Bolsheviks.
