Description: It’s 1918 and the end of Finland’s bloody civil war. Victorious government-supported Whites are rounding up and killing the remaining Social Democratic Reds, including the more than 2,000 women who fought among their ranks. Private Aaro Harjula is shocked to witness one such execution, so when he finds a survivor, a young Red platoon leader named Miina Malin, he decides to personally escort her to a nearby military tribunal where he believes she will receive a fair trial.
As they journey together, feelings develop between the two that will cause Harjula to question his loyalty, especially when the tribunal’s judge turns out to be a dissipated libertine in search of amusement for himself and his lascivious wife. As Miina’s fate is taken out of his hands, Harjula realizes he’ll do whatever is necessary to save her. Epic in scope, Tears of April brings a stirring testament to the possibility of human connection under the most inhuman circumstances.
