Summary

WARNING!! MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS!!


The White Horizon


Russia — the 1890s.

The Romanov Dynasty which has provided Russia's rules for three centuries is in decline in terms of power even while continuing to enjoy the very peaks of immense prosperity. At various places throughout their vast realm riots and strikes are breaking out one after another.

Marquis Prozorov, the new Moscow Divisional Commander, is shot by a mysterious assailant on his arrival from Petersburg in Moscow Station. The Marquis suffers only a slight wound and is treated by Dr. Mihail Karatozov and his fiancee Origa.

Captain Nikolai, Prozorov's aide, orders the Chief of Police to arrest the criminal at once. However, the attacker has fled into the slum, Hitrohuka, an underworld populated by beggars, prostitutes and criminals where even the police fear to go.

Later the same day Prozorov's daughter, Elena, arrives at Moscow Station. She has great difficulty finding a carriage to hire, but Sabinin comes to her aid and graciously lends Elena his own carriage. Sabinin, who controls the slum, Hitrohuka, is greatly enchanted by the lovely Elena.

The next evening Sabinin, Dr. Karatazov and Olga attend a party at Prozorov's official residence. The talk at the party is all about the horse race to be held the following Sunday. Prozorov's horse Ermitage and Sabinin's horse Gagarlin are the favorites.

Everyone goes to the race and watches Ermitage finish second to Gagarlin. Captain Nikolai, Ermitage's rider, is bitterly angry. Nikolai loves Elena andalready jealous of Sabininhe now wants violent revenge.

Sometime later, the Tsar Emperor of all Russia is assaulted by a ruffian. Prozorov accepts responsibility and takes his own life.

Grief striken, Elena leaves for Kharkov in the Ukraina to sell her father's villa. Sabinin follows her.

In the Ukraina they meet Captain Nikolai at his new posting. Nikolai provokes a duel with Count Sabinin. Nikolai shoots and misses. The count does not return the shot, and ends the duel. In shame, Nikolai resigns his military commission.

One stormy night while Sabinin is visiting Elena, Andre, a revolutionary student at the university bursts in. He begs for refuge. Their meeting is broken up the police who come to Elena's house in their search for the revolutionaries. The police seize Sabinin and Andre, and within a few days both are exiled to Siberia.

A year later Andre informs Elena that he and Sabinin have escaped from prison and the count is now hiding in Hitrohuka.

Elena goes to him at once, declares her love and proposes they flee Russia together.

Sabinin heard that Olivier, a wealthy man and president of a bank, has proposed to Elena. Sabinin believes that Elena will be much better off with Olivier and so he lies to her. He tells her that she must go first and alone. He tells her that after he is certain he has given the police the slip he will follow.

In the obscurity of the shadows of Moscow Station, Sabinin sees his beloved Elena off. Immediately after a decrepit tramp stabs Sabinin. The tramp is Nikolai.

Sabinin gasps, "Good luck, Elena."
