Victor Herman, together with his sisters and Russian-born parents, goes to the Soviet Union to establish an auto factory for Ford Motor Company, becomes the “Lindbergh of Russia,” is imprisoned and tortured under Stalin, and ends up in Siberia. After 45 years in Russia, Herman returns to the United States to tell his tale. Hurt narrates Herman’s stream-of-consciousness autobiography through trials, tribulations and survival under the harshest conditions. As the narrative jumps from scene to scene and different periods of time, Hurt manages to keep track of the setting and appropriate accents, lessening the discontinuity of the story.
