Résumé figurant sur la jaquette :"Moscou 1941, le guerre est déclarée. Boris s'est engagé pour le front comme volontaire, et avec sa fiancée Véronika, ils tardent à se séparer. Au-dessus d'eux passe un vol de cigognes. La guerre s'est installée, sans nouvelle de son fiancé, seule et esseulée, elle cède aux avances du cousin de Boris, un planqué peu glorieux, égoïste et distant. Délaissée, Véronika s'implique à sa manière dans le conflit en investissant son énergie à l'aide et au réconfort des soldats blessés rapatriés aux pays. Elle prend conscience de l'horreur de la guerre. Mais Véronika espère toujours le retour de Boris : elle continue donc de l'attendre. Pour elle vivre c'est aimer, oublier son amour c'est mourir."
