In these few life-altering months, a fifteen-year-old peasant girl named Zofia will run from her small farming village to a new promised land. Driven by a will to be free and a determination to escape the iron fist of the Russian Empire, Zofia devises a plan to get herself to America, where she has heard the streets are paved in gold. She finagles a marriage to a stranger, but is unable to obtain the necessary papers to leave the country. Undaunted, she leaves home on the eve of Ash Wednesday, and barely escapes being shot by Russian soldiers.
