Synopsis:

In a Chechen city recovering after the war, a man disappears. Those in search are drawn into a world where encounters with diviners and legal advisors, with the torturers and the tortured, with secret prisons and mythical lakes all become commonplace. When the disappeared do return in dreams, they are said to come from Barzakh - a land between the living and the dead.
