In Soviet Moscow a nameless writer is persecuted for his play about Pontius Pilate
and Jesus Christ. His lover makes a bargain with the Devil to save him. The Prince
of Shadows arrives in the city accompanied by a witch, a deadly assassin, and an enormous
talking cat, and this diabolical retinue soon wreaks havoc. Mikhail Bulgakov’s
epic and compassionate tale sweeps from ancient Judea to Stalinist Russia to the moment
of the apocalypse, testing the power of love, faith, and forgiveness to transform
a broken contemporary world.
