Set during the Second World War, Ivan Son of Amir tells the story of Maria, who is forced to flee Sevastapol with her young children. When she arrives in Uzbekistan, she is taken in by Amir and his wives. With Maria's husband missing in action and presumed dead, Maria marries the man who gave her family shelter. But as the War ends, Maria's present is brought face to face with the spectre of the past.
