The well-known novel by Panas Mirnyy for many has remained one of the compulsory books of the school curriculum.
But we are confident that it poses the question of which society has not yet been able to answer. In order to get closer to this, we are moving the collisions of the novel into the everyday life of those from whom the society has turned away, on the young offenders who have committed the crime and are now in the places of deprivation of liberty.
Who, if not they, knows the answer to the question: "Why are courageous, honest, and frank people becoming robbers and murderers?"
