Confession of the Devil

Director: Igor Parfenov.
Mental hospital, special department. A solitary cell has become a temporary place of detention for the leader of an organization “Earth Liberation Front”. He’s extremely insane and dangerous. His organization is recognized as terrorist. Having fallen into his nightmare visions, he refused to communicate with the outer world. His fate was predetermined: life imprisonment or death by shooting. But the last straw was not even the murder of 6 hostages – famous people; he went much further, challenging the existing system. Everyone left him. The only one who finds access to his sick mind and makes him talk is a young female doctor. But confession of the terrorist turns out to be much more terrific than the death of hostages, mental hospital cellars, and everything that an average mentality is used to. He made everyone see the war that constantly takes place all over the world, the war that were started by people against the nature, the war that an average person can’t even notice.
