This biographical drama is the sentimental sequel to A Mother's Heart. Elena Fadeyeva plays the beloved mother of Russian revolutionary Vladimir Lenin (Rodion Nakhapetov). She raises six children after the death of her husband, sacrificing her own needs for those of her offspring. The story takes place between 1900 and 1917, stopping just before the October revolution led by the heroic Lenin, and is one of literally hundreds of Soviet films about Lenin -- with an emphasis on the devotion of his sainted mother being the main theme.
