Russian melodrama that details the inspiration of Dostoevski (Chmelioff) when he spots an old man being brutally whipped in the street. Forgetting his aristocratic heritage, Chmelioff registers a strong protest over the man's violent treatment, and soon finds himself on the next train to
Siberia. After many months in that frigid hellhole, Chmelioff returns to civilization a broken man, willing to be the pawn of the Czar. Typical Soviet propaganda made watchable by impressive technical expertise and decent performances. (In Russian; English subtitles.)
