19th Century Russia: Feofar Khan has called upon his Tartars to revolt against the Czar, splitting Siberia off from the rest of the empire. In Irkutsk, the Czar's brother is desperately holding out against the rebellion. Desperately needing to get a message to his brother, the Czar gives Captain Strogoff a letter to deliver to the besieged garrison. To get through enemy lines, however, the courier will have to disguise himself as a merchant and travel in the company of his "wife", a disloyal subject with a big axe to grind against anything and anyone in the service of Imperial Russia.
