Description
Dima is a simple and honest plumber who works as a municipal repair-crew chief in a small Russian town. When the pipes burst in a large housing complex, Dima discovers a fracture in the building’s foundation that puts hundreds of people—all of them lower class citizens—in immediate danger. It’s a race against the clock, as he attempts to convince the city’s corrupt bureaucrats to act. Yuriy Bykov’s moral rollercoaster ride exposes the culpability of the powers-that-be as a gripping diplomatic shell game.
