Plot synopsis
A year after her son went missing, the mother receives the news that her son is in Ingushetia, Caucasus. A subtle drama based on a sadly believable plotline. An unexpected visit disturbs the calm of Maria‘s day-to-day existence with the news that her son is suspected of involvement in a hostage-taking. Both bewildered and overwhelmed, Maria is tasked with making a phone call intended to bring him back to his senses.
