In the Age of War
Only in the 1956 Soviet Union could an ideological struggle create a personal identity crisis.
After the death of Stalin, Khrushchev pushed out the brutal signs of Stalinism in bold moves meant to generate a Soviet Renaissance. KGB Captain Mikhail Ivanko, a paragon of Stalinist virtue, is sent on a special mission far away, from which he is meant to never return, while his dog, Laika, becomes a symbol of Soviet space dominance.
Certain of the Communist virtue of his mission, Ivanko pursues a failed mission that makes him separate ideas of mission from drives for survival.
A tale spanning centuries, from Old Russia to the Modern World ...
