The Passing Tribute

With the brothers estranged by distance and time, their lives become unknowingly entwined in the plot to assassinate the Austrian Emperor.
The Emperor, refusing both abdication and exile, is holed up with his family in a hunting lodge on the Slovak-Hungarian border, surrounded by revolution. He too has a choice to make: but if he leaves, will he ever return?
