In 1942, Belarus is in the hands of the Nazis and the local militia. Sushenya is taken from his house in the middle of the night by Burow and his sidekick Voitik, two partisan fighters hiding out in the hills and forest. Sushenya is the only one of four captured rail workers who has been allowed to live by the occupying Germans, after seemingly sabotaging the rail tracks. With the village and even his wife turned against him as a collaborator, Sushenya accepts his fate until the Germans show up and he is, perhaps, given a second chance, leaving room for doubt both on his betrayal and on the legitimacy of punishment by death. The three, and later two men, walk in the wood, exhausted, fleeing death from the Nazis whilst discussing and living with the moral dilemmas of treason, heroism, guilt and revenge. Shot in sumptuous long takes and vibrant colour, In the Fog ultimately questions the corruption of man’s very humanity in the context of war.
