Miri is on the verge of becoming one of Russia's only female surgeons, and Vanya, a brilliant physicist, is hoping to solve the final puzzles of Einstein's elusive theory of relativity Through the time to escape is running out, how can they bear to leave their homeland that has given them so much?

But when war is declared and Vanya goes missing, along with Miri's fiancé, Miri braves the firing squad, with the help of a mysterious, wounded soldier, to go looking for them both. As a solar eclipse that will change history darkens the skies and the future of modern science hangs in the balance, Miri must reckon with her heart and race for her family's survival.
