Students film | Drama Duration 19:08

A chairman of the Writer’s Union falls into a turmoil of fever dreams confronting his previous beliefs, right before he needs to give an important speech against a law strongly restricting the freedom of expression. Suddenly he begins to doubt the fluency of his words and the need to say anything at all when the sentences are empty and mechanical.
