Cast & Crew
Nathan Forge, romantic son of a cruel businessman, publishes in a local newspaper a poem about a girl who once befriended him. The girl, a student in a nearby school, reads the poem and recognizes herself. Years pass, and Nathan goes through various hardships, including an unhappy marriage, imprisonment, and the war. Then in Siberia, working for the International Red Cross, he meets the girl who is the subject of his poem and thus achieves happiness. (The title could have either or both of two explanations: the protagonists "spend their youth in a fog, battling against the tyranny, ignorance and obscurity of their situations"; or their eventful meeting takes place on a foggy hilltop.)
