THE EXECUTION

de Lado Kvataniya

Synopsis

For years, Russian police forces have tried to stop the country’s smartest and most wanted serial killer. But even when he gets caught, nobody can prove his guilt. As the manhunt intensifies, the investigation grows increasingly personal between the detective and the suspect. The Execution is inspired by the real-life case of a murderer who, in the middle of the Soviet era, managed to elude the police over the course of a decade.
