In Joseph Stalin’s early 1930’s Russia, an entire class of people were at risk of exploitation. Valeyria and Alexei Yolkin were members of one such family.
It was a freezing day when the first Yolkin sibling turned on another. With the young children listening in fear below in the darkness, they heard their uncle Eduard giving orders to kill their mother and father. The only girl, Valeyria aged just seven, had a sudden desire for revenge, it consumed her. She hated her uncle Eduard and she wanted him to die – by her hands, if she could.
But would her thirst for revenge, lead her to her final dawn and cloud her judgement? Will she take it too far and turn on those she is supposed to love?
