The Prosecutor, the Defender, the Father and His Son
The story of a young man’s accidental and short-lived appearance on the stage of supreme European justice, a story, whose development and outcome toss an existential question: does the pursuit of universal democracy justify the use of all means possible? It is the story about the value of a humble man’s life and the dimensions of human dignity.
The film examines the intertwining of the destinies of people who wouldn’t have met under normal circumstances. A collision of radically different life standards: a clash between the self-confident professionals with stable values and the timid humble men, forlorn, exhausted by events in which they play their given role unwillingly. The encounter between the big players and the pawns, an encounter, which allows them to enter into each others’ lives, leaving there permanent scars.
