Set during one of the most overlooked and tragic periods of the 20th century, Bitter Harvest is a powerful story of love, honor, rebellion and survival as seen through the eyes of two young lovers caught in the ravages of Joseph Stalin’s policies of intolerance against Ukraine in the 1930s. As Stalin advances the ambitions of the burgeoning Soviet Union, a young artist named Yuri (Max Irons) overcomes famine, imprisonment, and torture to save his childhood love, Natalka (Samantha Barks), from the “Holodomor.” Against this explosive backdrop, Yuri escapes from a Soviet prison and joins the anti-Bolshevik resistance movement as he battles to reunite with Natalka and continue the fight for a free Ukraine. Filmed on location in Ukraine, this epic love story brings to light one of the most unknown chapters of modern Europe. The stellar cast also includes Barry Pepper, Tamer Hassan, and Terence Stamp.
