Plot synopsis
1919. It is the civil war in Siberia. Taking advantage of the total confusion, General Kolchak wants to export part of the country's gold reserves abroad. At the very last moment, the Bolsheviks will learn about it.
They decide to intercept the train, but do not have time to properly prepare the operation ... But there is still a chance. The young girl Nadia, with whom the conductor is passionately in love, can save the day ... Several kilometers of railroad tracks to the border become a battleground between the Whites and the Reds. All have the same red blood.
