A dramatic tale worthy of Dostoyevsky, The fool tells the story of one man's fight against a corrupt political system. Dima is a young man eking out a living in modern day Russia as a plumber's assistant while working to finish college. Called out late one night to inspect a leak at a derelict housing community, he discovers a major structural problem and a building on the verge of collapse. In his attempt to save lives of the eight hundred residents, Dima will find himself drawn into a world of dark secrets and cancerous corruption, where politicians and power players live by their own code and where tragic consequences are but a grim afterthought.

Социальная драма

Жизни 800 человек общежития висят буквально на волоске из-за безразличия местных властей. В любую секунду здание может рухнуть. И кто бы мог подумать, что судьбы людей окажутся в руках простого сантехника.

Но удастся ли ему что-то изменить и предотвратить катастрофу?
