Plot synopsis
The second part of the dilogy that continues the Oscar-winning film “Burnt by the Sun”.
Division Commander Kotov has paid with his crippled fate for the restoration of his reputation. He returns to the house whose memory has given him strength for all those terrible years. But what awaits Kotov in this house shakes him up: everything has changed, his fragile world has collapsed. Kotov again needs to fight – for his name, for his honour. For love. For his Citadel.
