Stalin comes to rest three days in a castle in the middle of the forest, accompanied by his longtime mistress, Lidia. In the cabinet where he sleeps, there is a couch that resembles to the one Freud has in London. He proposes to Lidia to play the game of psychoanalysis, at night. During the day a young painter, Danilov, waits to be received by Stalin to present to him the monument of eternity that he designed to his glory.
A troubled, dangerous and perverse relationship binds the three leaving the challenge to survive fear and betrayal.
