The film is based on The Governor, a play by Leonid Andreyev. V.I. Kachalov plays the governor of a small Russian province who tries to treat the people under his authority with kindness and equanimity.

He pays for this betrayal of his trust with his life -- at the hands of a courageous Bolshevik spy.
