in cooperation with city politicians burn the newly built church,
blind the archmaster, and imprison the icon painter. Him and the
priest, chained, are experiencing their worst days, expecting elevation
and the possibility of transfiguration. The communist authorities
insert their man into their cell, in order to find out what are their
intentions after prison. The icon painter, Christ believer, crazy
