Varlam Aravidze, a high-ranking Soviet official, uses his powers to condemn innocent people to repression and death. Years later, Ketevan Barateli, the daughter of a family ruined by Aravidze, decides to take her revenge and digs up his corpse. When she is later put on trial, Barateli reveals Aravidze’s policy of paranoid repression. Full of remorse for his grandfather’s actions and seeking to confront his father, Varlam’s grandson Tornike resorts to an extreme form of protest and commits suicide.
