NR 1 hr 15 minDrama
During the chaotic last months of the Khrushchev regime, a teenager’s errand to the village market for bread ends in a nightmarish confrontation with local police authorities. Sadistic shower room confrontations, unsanitary detention facilities and a tomb-like prison cell become classrooms on the horrors of the human soul. As his fellow captives are tortured, die or quietly lose their minds, the naive 13-year-old becomes an unwilling witness to starting lessons in honor, hatred, conscience and survival.
