On his deathbed, a Macedonian politician remembers his childhood in post-World War II Yugoslavia. After wandering the countryside in the aftermath of the war, communist soldiers take Lem to a hard labor camp acting as an orphanage. There, he experiences the indoctrination of Soviet and communist ideology, a larger project that consolidated Tito's power and quelled ethnic, religious, and nationalist tensions. When Isaac arrives, Lem begins to question his re-education.
