The song serves as a narrative path in this story of a peaceful and neighborly existence of three Polish, Ukrainian, and Jewish families who share a large house, musical evenings, and merriment in the city of Stanislav. Their domestic harmony is shattered first by the Nazi invasion and then by the Soviet occupation of Ukraine. A moving story of courage, sacrifice, and love.
