The Soviet pioneer of documentary film presents turbulent episodes of the civil war that followed the Russian revolution of the early 20th century and includes images of historical figures such as Trotsky. This film was considered lost (or reused in other works by the director), but it is finally presented to the public, a century later, given the reconstruction work by the academic Nikolai Izvolov.
