Colonel Kotov's comfortable twilight years are interrupted when a man on a quest for vengeance arrives with a secret mission to arrest the Colonel in anticipation of Joseph Stalin's upcoming Great Purge. Nikita Mikhalkov plays Colonel Kotov, whose work in the Russian Civil War made him a national hero.
