In 1920, during the final days of Imperial Russia, the Communist revolution is underway. The last soldiers loyal to the Tsar are held in a prison camp awaiting Moscow’s decision regarding their fate. The Lieutenant (Mārtiņš Kalita) recalls his encounter, years before, with a beautiful and enigmatic woman (Victoria Solovyova). During the course of a steamboat journey, their paths crossed briefly. The Woman was married, and the Lieutenant engaged, but despite every obstacle, the attraction was overpowering. Their "sunstroke", as they called it, led them into a single night of such sensual intensity that The Lieutenant remembers it to this day, clinging to this memory of an opulent Russia and a better life.
