His father is a dramatist, his mother an opera singer. But during Stalin's reign of terror in the 1930s, both parents are arrested. Alexei Berg flees, and begins his endless journey until he lands, two decades later, in a snowbound train station in the Urals, where he relates his harrowing saga to the novel's narrator.
