FR - Baron Fyodor Jeremin, un jeune aristocrate russe, se porte volontaire pour servir l’escadrille du Dragon afin d’impressionner la fille qui rejette son amour. A cette époque, l’insurrection de 1883 explose en Pologne. Il s’enrôle dans l’armée envoyée pour contrer la révolte. Il croit que vaincre les Polonais,  devenir un officier et un héro, recevoir un tas de médailles, s’en revenir et étendre ces faits aux pieds de sa bien aimée suffiront à la convaincre. Cependant, la petite guerre polonaise est totalement différente de ce qu’imaginait le jeune Jeremin. Avec le temps, il apprend à être du mauvais côté. Mais il n’y a pas d’issue de secours – il doit tuer ou il sera tué. De plus, il tombe amoureux d’une belle jeune fille polonaise…
