In a land of pride, betrayal and broken dreams, only the strong survive. When the Soviet Union collapsed, a 200 billion-dollar legacy was left buried in its ruins. The key to uncovering it lies in the hands of Nadenka, a young girl who possesses a mysterious Khristos ring. When Yugo is hired to bring her to Japan, he finds himself trapped in the midst of a deadly web of greed and treachery.
Traveling to the frigid land of Siberia, Yugo is left out in the cold in more ways than one as he discovers that his contractor has a sinister ulterior motive for hiring him. With the KGB hounding him at every step, things quickly turn from bad to worse as Yugo is subjected to an interrogation so cruel that even he may be forced to give in. His only hope lies at the end of a frozen path that even Russians fear to tread, leading straight into the heart of the enemy...
