Synopsis[edit | edit source]

Indiana Jones returns home from World War I to a frosty reception from his father, Henry, Senior. Over dinner the pair recall two adventures of Indy's youth in 1910: when the boy ran away with Leo Tolstoy in Russia, and the Joneses' subsequent bonding during their reluctant travels together through Greece. However, the night leads to an estrangement between the two that will take decades to mend.
