In the dying days of the Soviet Union, a Russian mobster sets in motion a daring plan to steal a dangerous prize from a secret naval base. In a desolate forest in Imperial Russia, a peasant and his son are caught at ground zero of a fifteen megaton explosion. The two events are joined by a desperate struggle for an artifact that could destroy the world, an artifact that fell out of a CRUEL SKY.
