Lev is a young man living in a St. Petersburg under siege by the Nazis. One evening he is caught out after curfew and thrown in jail. In his cell, Lev meets an army deserter and university student named Kolya. The boys are offered a reprieve by the Colonel if they can locate a dozen eggs for his daughter’s wedding cake in less than a week’s time. Forced out into the wild, war ravaged streets and even slipping behind German lines, the two form true friendship, meet many interesting people, and come to understand the beauty and horrors of war.
