I’m not saying he wasn’t put in a dreadful position. But it’s an inescapable fact he did it. He commanded those pilots to dive. To their deaths. Whatever the reasons.

Nikolai Koslov, a Russian architect and father, avenges the death of his family in a plane crash by killing the air traffic controller he holds responsible. Maintaining he can’t remember his crime, Koslov serves four years in a Swiss prison before being suddenly released. Back home he is greeted as a national hero and is even given a ministerial position. But guilt and remorse cannot stay buried forever.

Two actors perform a gripping tale of loss, blame and forgiveness, inspired by real events.
