As the clouds of war spread over Russia during Germany's surprise invasion in 1941, two fervent young lovers, Veronika and Boris, are parted when the Boris secretly volunteers for the war effort. During the following years, Veronika, who serves her country as a wartime-nurse, will lose communication with Boris after a devastating air raid destroys her house. Veronika soon finds herself dealing not only with the dark thoughts of Boris' potential loss but also with the burden of an unwelcome decision.
