Vienna. 1683. The combined Polish and Viennese armies have beaten back the Turkish force. In the aftermath of the siege, the city's survivors begin to build their society anew. The Emperor and Empress would like order restored, and the poor just want to survive, but Starhemberg, the general responsible for the salvation of the city, and Katrin, a wounded citizen, seek to forge a new world out of the ashes of the old. A harrowing love story, and an exploration of our personal freedoms and choices inside the maddening political structures that control our lives. For mature audiences only.
