About the film

Late USSR. The General Secretary lies in the government clinic. He is old and frail, but has a tight grip on power. “The power is taken, it is never given away,” he repeats. And various groups are scoring their political points while the “body” is alive. Sasha, a fragile invisible nurse bears a heavy burden of responsibility for the life of the “sentenced to life” official.
