A Prague theatre company arrives in Krakow with a stage adaptation of Dostoyevsky’s The Brothers Karamazov to be presented in a local steelworks. As rehearsals progress, we observe story lines from the real world, of the cast and of a single worker who observes them. The issues of faith, immortality, and salvation cross borders as the fi lm moves between its alternating perspectives. Focussing on the trial scenes, the film examines the subject of patricide, the complicity of the three younger Karamazovs and the supposedly illegitimate Smerdyakov.
