The Reality Of Life In Soviet Era Ukraine.
6 September 2000 | by (Sydney) – See all my reviews

This film tells what it was like to live in the USSR with brutal reality.

A convict is forced to hide within a model of a hammer and sickle. Here a tragic romance ensues between the convict and woman worker; which is spoilt by the woman's jealous young son.

The convict is then forced to undergo a tragic bid for freedom which ends with the beauty of swans contrasted with the imprisoned convicts and the hopeful but ultimately tragic wait by the woman for her lover.
