A theatre group from Prague is mounting a play based on Dostoevsky’s The Brothers Karamazov in a nearly deserted Polish steel mill. Fyodor Karamazov is brought back from his grave to confront his sons about his murder. The play reveals each son’s role in their father’s murder, while offstage the cast members and factory workers stories become intertwined and reflect the themes portrayed on stage. English subtitles.
