In hypnotic images, the director tells a moving story about people coping during wartime, where laws are no valid and still have the power over life and death. Because he was at the wrong place at the wrong time, innocent station master Sushenya is arrested by the German occupying forces in Belarus in 1942. While three of his colleagues are hanged because they caused a train to derail, injured Sushenya, a family man, is let go. This leads people to believe he is a collaborator. One night, two partisans, one his neighbor and friend Burov, knock on Sushenya's door to execute the alleged traitor in the woods. “Heavyweight historical suspense drama...a universal meditation on the human condition.” (The Hollywood Reporter) “A jewel.“ (Screen Daily)
