"An exceptional ensemble of Chicago actors at their peak of their games."  –Chicago Tribune
 
"An ensemble cast powerfully capture the mix of heroism and ruthlessness required to get through the nightmare alive."  –Chicago Reader
 
"A painfully beautiful adaptation"  –Flavorpill

During the 900-day Nazi siege of Leningrad, Russian botanist Ilya is charged with protecting a cache of valuable seeds for future generations. As the weeks turn to months and the city starves, Ilya and his co-workers are torn between their livesí work, the dictates of a brutal regime, and the harsh realities of survival in a time of war. Consumed by innumerable hungers and haunted by memories of happier days, Ilya must decide whether to preserve his life or protect his ideals. A powerful drama of deprivation and loss, in a world premiere adaptation.

Based on the 2003 debut novel by American author and journalist Elise Blackwell (The Unnatural History of Cypress Parish, An Unfinished Score).
