Ukraine, 1930s.  American  engineer  Michael  Shamrock  (Jeff  Burrell)  arrives  in  Kharkiv  with  his ten-year old son, Peter (Anton Greene) to help “build socialism”. He falls in love with an actress Olga   (Jamala)   who   has  another   admirer,   Communist   Commissar   Vladimir.   Under   tragic circumstances, the American is killed and his son is saved from his pursuers by a blind “Kobzar’ (Stanislav Boklan).  With  no  other  chance  to  survive  in  a foreign  land,  the  boy  becomes  his guide.  Their  journey,  full  of  dangerous  adventures,  unfolds against  the  backdrop of  one  of the  most  dramatic  pages  of  Ukrainian  history  and  human  destruction.  The film, about love, loyalty, betrayal and infamy is based on true events.
