1921, America and Soviet Bolshevism mixed for
the first time in the crucible of one event:
a famine that threatened the lives of millionsof Russians.
For the members of the American
rescue operation, it was an experience without precedent
or parallel-an experience that
would test the limits and power
of American efficiency, optimism, and moral
uplift - an encounter that would launch seven
decades of epic rivalry.
These were Herbert Hoover's men, former doughboys
who saved lives by preaching the superiority
of the American way, an ethic as old as the
republic itself. This is a film about the American
Relief Administration's campaign to battle starvation
in Bolshevik Russia in the years following the
First World War.
It is a story of patriots, of men who confronted death
with determinism, and who found their American experience
a difficult fit in the place they called Bololand.
