Set in Czarist Russia around the turn of the century, and based on a true story of a Russian-Jewish peasant Yakov Bok, who was wrongly imprisoned for a most unlikely crime, the "ritual murder" of a Gentile child in Kiev. We witness the unrelenting detail of the peasant-handyman's life in prison, and see him gain in dignity as the efforts to humiliate him and make him confess fail.
This is "The Fixer" who didn't know he had courage...until courage was all he had left.
