Plot synopsis
On a night train, a father tells his son a bedtime story. The day after, they will arrive in Siberia, 500 km away from the closest village, to follow Vissarion, a self-proclaimed reincarnation of Jesus. With his delicate voice, the boy shares his fears and fading memories. An intimate look at the dark nature of sectarianism.
