Central is one of the heaviest and largest psychiatric hospitals in Siberia. We meet staff and patients who will spend the rest of their days locked within its walls. 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.
