Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
In an intriguing drama with no winners at the end, Andreev (Filip Trifonov) is a young and aspiring lawyer who takes on the job of local magistrate in a small town. His curiosity is piqued when he finds out the man who preceded him as magistrate is now in prison. After he starts to innocently investigate the reason why, he comes up against evasion and double-talk from anyone he approaches. Now really onto the case, he unearths evidence that the mayor of the town is more guilty than innocent. Yet when everyone, even the imprisoned man, asks him to drop his inquiries he stubbornly continues on.
