Private Project


A detective, TALGAT (35), is investigating the case of a missing young woman, ALIYA (25). She was abducted by MARAT (35), who forcibly keeps her locked up at his home in the suburbs. The search leads Talgat to the village, where Aliya is being held. Talgat finds the house where Marat hides Aliya at the moment when Marat is trying to kill Aliya for her escape attempt. Talgat detains Marat and learns that Aliya is not the first victim of the rapist. Talgat faces a difficult dilemma: to punish the rapist according to the law or to arrange a lynching of Marat for his atrocities.
