Студия «Фишка-фильм» / Studio"Fishka-film"
The main character of the film may not have committed the murder for which he was sentenced to death 25 years ago, but definitely contemplated it. The sentence was later commuted to life without parole. The director watches the subject for a quarter-century, witnessing the former atheist gradually gain faith. As in the classics, suffering brings cleansing. The only liaison between the prisoner, the world, and Heaven, is the prison chaplain. Together, they represent the eternal duo of sinner and saint. Cain and Abel. They have nowhere to hide from each other. Which is which? It is unclear whose burden is the heavier one.
