Storyline

The story of this film is based on the 10 missing pages from the case of Fanny Kaplan, who was accused of attempting to assassinate Vladimir Lenin in 1918. It focuses on her love affair with Lenin's brother, Dmitriy Ilyich Ulyanov. The plot follows Kaplan throughout her short, yet challenging life: from her early days in Odessa, participating in an anarchist bomb plot; through the years spent in Siberian labour camps; to the brief reunion with her ex-lover, the bandit-turned-Bolshevik Viktor Garskiy; and ultimately the arrest and execution in one of the courtyards of the Kremlin.
