Zelim, a 20-year-old Chechen living in the North Caucasus, is arrested one morning without charge. Over five days of brutal torture, the police try to extract a confession for crimes he did not commit. Thanks to his resilience Zelim manages to survive and escape to Norway. While Zelim battles nightmares and oppressive memories in his new home, his family in Ingushetia try to clear his name. Director Natalia Mikhaylova uses Zelim’s story to return to the five fateful days that changed his life and call attention to the fact that he is not the only victim of the Russian state apparatus.
