Narrative story of the last three months of Stalin’s life as well as another attempt, using archive documents and expert reports, not only to show famous historical characters regarding under an unusual and unexpected aspect but also to present explanations in connection with the reasons and motives of their actions. What was the “leader of the nations” guided by then? An incompatible mixture of fear of the Judgement Day to come and permanent fear for his life! And it was exactly that fear artificially and proficiently enforced that split the people into two opposing rival groups – those who snitched and those who were snitched on. Basically a story of Egor Kozlov, lieutenant of the Ministry of State Security and son of “public enemy”. His whole life is penetrated with fear but he is condemned to live next to the person who generated it.
