At the tender age of sixteen Nadezhda Alliluyev (1901-1932) married Joseph Stalin, twenty three years her senior. Throughout their fourteen years of family life, Nadezhda stood by as Stalin transformed from the ordinary revolutionary into the unlimited dictator. One morning she was found dead, in her bed, a revolver by her side. Up to this day historians continue the heated debate as to whether she had killed herself or was murdered by Stalin.
Most of the events of Nadezhda's short and tragic life are as enigmatic as her death. The documentary about Nadezhda's shattered and abruptly short life includes many sensational, never before published archival materials.
