Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Zina (Domiziana Giordano) is the daughter of Russian revolutionary Leon Trotsky. When her father is exiled, Zina heads to Berlin in hopes of leading a normal life. Tormented by nightmares, Zina turns to a psychiatrist (Ian McKellan) for aid. The doctor comes to the conclusion that Zina's nocturnal visions are portents for future horrors--specifically the rise of the Nazis. This thought-provoking British film ends with the symbolic death of the ideals set down by the "visionary" Leon Trotsky.
