Nineteen-year-old Stephan Varda flees his father's wrath over the death of his beloved brother in unstable 1880s Hungary. It doesn't take long for Miklos Varda to regret losing yet another son, but it's already too late to find Stephan. Strong-tempered Miklos learns one bitter lesson after another until he becomes homeless himself -- at the same time Stephan is learning about the mercy of Jesus Christ from a beautiful, devout young Hungarian-American. Intricately coordinated events lead both Stephan and Miklos to America and to a pivotal decision: whether or not to accept God's undying love.
