Plot: A historical drama that recreates the brutal events of 1946 Russia, in which Stalin, having tricked expatriates into returning to their native land, murders and imprisons them as they cross the border. The film focuses on a married couple and their seven-year-old son. The father, a Russian immigrant living in France, decides to move his family back to Russia. Landing, they are only kept alive due to the fact that he is a doctor. Eventually, the mother becomes fed up and searches for a way to return to France. Regis Wargnier's film is a powerful and sobering effort.
