The film is based on the biblical story of Christ’s death and resurrection, which we see through the eyes of brigand Barabbas who escaped death on the cross, released by the crowd in honour of Easter. But long awaited freedom brings only pain and doubts. Acquaintance with mysterious Melchior and further events change his life completely. Barabbas is constantly being tortured by the only question – is the man from Nazareth the Son of God?
Followed by a Q&A with director Evgeny Emelin
