Plot Summary:

In the beginning of the 20th century, Russia was shocked by a series of cold-blooded murders. These killings were carried out by the "fighting organization," a socialist revolutionary group that directed acts of terrorism against various high officials of the state in different cities. The group is headed by George, and includes bomb maker Erne, who is devoted to him, and bomb throwers Vanya, Henry and Fyodor. As they try to achieve their main objective -- the murder of Grand Duke Sergey Aleksandrovich -- the story reveals their feelings and aspirations. They are terrorists for a variety of reasons: for love, revenge, principles and a belief in a better future. As their attempts on the Grand Duke's life fall short, members of the organization disappear. George suddenly realizes that he would do anything to kill the Duke...
