Germans migrated to Russia in the 1700s and early 1800s with the promise of good farmland. They formed colonies and were allowed to speak their native language, establish their own schools, and build their own churches. At the end of the Great War, Russia Germans were forced into a life of poverty, as the Communist demanded they share more and more of their crops, leaving them to starve. The Grieb and Wallentine families were fortunate to be living in Bessarabia, Romania at the end of the Great War. They continued to prosper and live their lives as they had before the war.

Fear grips the Grieb and Wallentine families as the threat of the Red Army invading Romania becomes a reality.
