The action takes place in a nameless country occupied by the German army at the time of World War II. In a small village there's an asylum. A squad of German soldiers arrives to take the insane people to a "walk in the forest". Just before they are ready to go to forest to kill the insane people, a Gestapo officer arrives and from his conversation with the doctor we can find out that there's an enemy agent hiding himself in the asylum. Officer Windisch must find the agent from 583 people and on his searches he is slowly starting to feel himself crazy too.

The dramatic content of Kaljo Kiisk and Anatoly Zabolotsky's images is overwhelming, forcing us to feel with the characters and at the same time shrink from them in horror. The year 1968 brought a remarkable crop of such enduring films as "Supplication" by Tenghiz Abuladze, "Daytime Stars" by Igor Talankin, "There Is No Crossing under Fire" by Gleb Panfilov and "Intervention" by Gennady Poloka. All these films opened a new page in interpreting national history, the destinies of people and individuals. See more
