Plot
Can a person surrounded by violence remain innocent and pure? Can a person be totally innocent? Baltic states during the German occupation. The main protagonist Maris is a village soul sick, a god's fool. Along with his brother and other villagers he is attracted to Wehrmacht service. Their barracks are located in a monastery. The spiritual nature of the place almost justifies crimes that the soldiers commit and, in a way, grants them approval from the higher forces. The boundary between the Exalted and the Terrible disappears. And while all soldiers are at peace with themselves, Maris is not able to sleep. He is tortured by apparitions, the most horrific of which are visions of the future.

And Maris resists the violence and war. Together with the miraculously saved Jewish girl Leah, Maris decides to escape. But is it even possible to escape from the war? And can insanity be an excuse?
