The play takes place in the Moscow police department. Nikolay, the detainee, is a thirty-year-old resident of Podolsk, situated near Moscow, waits in fear for the explanations, why he is brought here and what is his fault.
But the usual interrogation in such a situation turns into an intellectual and personal test, which turns out for the character to be worse than moral and physical humiliations.
A new form of cruelty makes Nikolay pay attention to the Reality that exists around...
– And why Reality is written with capital letter?
– That is the way it must be according to our instructions.
