Synopsis by Hal Erickson
One of a cycle of late-1920s films dealing with the Russian Revolution, Siberia stars Alma Rubens as idealistic Russian schoolteacher Sonia Vronsky. Enraptured by the communist cause, Sonia runs afoul of the Czarist authorities and is shipped off to Siberia. Here she is protected from harm by her sweetheart, military officer Leonid Petroff (Edmund Lowe). When the revolution finally comes, even loyal Leninists like Sonia are in danger of being trampled by the surging mobs. Leonid rescues the girl from this fate, and together they embark on an exciting escape across the snowy Siberian steppes and tundras.
