As a total surprise to the world, the Molotov ultimatum to Romania is an undeniable proof that she wants more: the North of Bucovina with its capital Cernauti, a territory that had been the easternmost region of the late Austrian Empire up to the end of WWI. Three families, three different ethnic origins, will have their lives changed. Their children are friends from childhood on: Hugo and his sister Alba, of Austrian/Czech parents, Igor the Russian. This unexpected ultimatum will achieve what the war could not so far: separate them from their great friend, Dinou the pure Romanian, who lives in Bucharest. Surprisingly the Germans decide to repatriate all those of German and Austrian descent. Hugo will leave with his family for an unknown to them Great Germany and make acquaintance with the national-socialist ideology, Igor will become a citizen of the Soviet Union and experience Communist regime. Dinou alone remains in his native country of Romania. In 1941, Germany attacks the Soviet-Union their former ally. As the war goes on, Grisha has to join the Red-Army, Hugo the German Army, and Dinou becomes a Romanian officer. They are virtual enemies now. But their wish, deeply rooted in their hearts, is to see each other again, once the killing has ceased.
