The Promise

By Aleksei Arbuzov. Translated by Ariadne Nicolaeff and adapted by Nick Dear.

As Russians fight off the Nazis in the savage 1942 siege of Leningrad, three teenagers are thrown together in a war-torn apartment block. Having lost everything, they forge relationships that bind them together and a new hope that keeps them alive - the promise of a better future.
