The Promise archiveIn the savage 1942 winter siege of Leningrad, as the Russians fight off the Nazi invaders, three teenagers, Lika, Marat and Leonidik are thrown together. Losing everything from their pasts, they forge a new love that binds them together and a new hope which keeps them alive: the promise of a better future. After the war, now Heroes of the Soviet Union, Marat and Leonidik both return to the only woman they could ever love, and Lika is forced to make an impossible choice between two men who keep the promise alive.

Author Aleksei Arbuzov.
