The reports by civilian victims of the Russian and Belarusian occupation in Ukraine contain descriptions of torture and repression that appear to be systematic in nature. Taking those reports as a basis, a filmmaker from Belarus investigates that systematic procedure on the streets of his Berlin neighborhood. He also confronts the question of what this war of annihilation has to do with him and what responsibility he himself bears.
