Abstract:

December 1930, Ukraine. Luka, a war veteran, wants a quiet life with his family. Their village is hidden from the advancing Soviet brutality--until the stranger arrives pulling a sled bearing a terrible cargo. When the villagers' fear turns deadly, they think they've saved themselves. But their anger has cursed them: a little girl has vanished. In these frozen lands, Luka has the skills to find the one who stole the child. With his sons, he sets out in pursuit. They track down a skillful hunter who uses the child as the bait in his twisted game. Battling harsh conditions, Luka must stay ahead of Soviet authorities. His toughest enemy is the man he tracks, yet his strongest bond is a promise to his family back home.
