A mysterious artist appears in different districts of Minsk. He spreads his canvass and begins to paint. Curious passers-by spontaneously approach the painter and ask him questions about his work. The man never reveals what he is actually painting – he just replies with a question. He asks them what they see on the canvas. Art becomes an excuse to talk about life, the every-day reality, the state, social issues and human stories. Together, they reveal the secret of the “last dictatorship of Europe”.
