A talented theatre director has been expelled from the capital for his particular views for two years. He has been sent to a small provincial theatre where he wants to put on a play about his obsessive thoughts. This play talks about people who are being constantly watched and are living in constant fear of punishment. Gradually, the nightmares of the play begin to move into the life of the troupe. The film portrays the climate of communist Eastern Europe but with humor and involves the audience with the director’s thoughts who wishes to narrate part of the history of that era.
