In October of 1941, Soviet people still believe that the war with Germany will not last longer than a few months. Nonetheless, an order from the authorities brings not only factories, but historical valuables away from the front. A small-town museum, which had been cozily housed in an ancient monastery, is evacuated. The team charged with saving its cultural property consists only of a young woman named Asya, her professor father, and his assistant Fedenka. There is one special piece in the museum, which is supposed to go on exhibit under the patronage of Comrade Stalin himself; but the Germans, too, have plans for this item.
