Within the walls of a psychiatric hospital we meet staff and patients who will spend the rest of their days locked in. "Central" is one of the heaviest and largest hospitals in Siberia. The building was built as a prison, and for over a hundred years has been the place for political prisoners and now is the site of isolation of incurably ill. Hundreds of patients are looked after by only five old psychiatrists working in the hospital and the entire nearby village works there. This is the story of a closed community ruled by doctors from another era and patients seeking their place in the world they do not understand.
