This bundle of stories describes about events often placed at tumultuous times of the twenties century. The plots of the stories are skillfully skimmed throughout different, well known places and times, and at which the people involved had been struggling with the adversities of their fate. … returning home by long distance train, old and tired Alexander Vertynsky, a well known singer, is recalling different periods of his life, full of dramatic events and artistic travels around the world, and people he met... Back in Soviet Union, and giving hundreds of concerts in the whole country, he never got recognition of his effort by the official media (press, radio). All that, on high orders from the 'top,'… … the beginning of the World War II (1939), in the Polish city of Vilno, was presented from a perspective of a child.
