Somewhere in an unnamed Eastern European authoritarian state, writer Katurian Katurian has been arrested for reasons unknown to him. As his interrogation goes on, he learns about a series of gruesome child murders which bear a disturbing resemblence to his own short stories. With his writing on trial and his mentally handicapped brother apparently being tortured in the holding cell next door, Katurian must find a way to protect himself, his brother, and the stories that he intended to leave as his legacy.
