Sixteen years ago, Belarus witnessed a string of events that had a terrifying effect on the entire society. In the span of just a few months, the Deputy Speaker of the Supreme Soviet died unexpectedly, followed by the disappearances of the Minister of Domestic Affairs, the Deputy Prime Minister, and a respected businessman. Less than a year later, a cameraman from a major television network vanished without a trace. The cases remain unsolved, under separate investigations and with multiple inconsistencies. Fifteen years later, a prominent Belarusian human rights defender meticulously examines all the materials to piece together a nuanced and unsettling picture of the case.
