This is a thrilling story of one of histories’ most hunted/wanted men – Leon Trotsky. He waged war alongside Vladimir Lenin in Russia’s revolution in 1917. His political conviction and ambition made him betray comrades and abandon his family so he could rise on the revolutionary scene. As the Soviet government developed, he engaged in a power struggle against Joseph Stalin, which he lost, leading to his exile. Having lost his friends and relatives during the eleven years away, Trotsky realizes that Stalin will follow him to the end of his days; he can run, but he cannot hide. Trotsky decides to fight back, but instead of bullets he will use words, by leaving a political testimony. Engaging a young Canadian journalist to help spread his word, his testament to the world sees him recalling a life of incredible drama, with war, love, and politics all mounting in what turn out to be the confessions of a man soon to be dead.
