Title: The Scar

Feature film.
The story of the struggle of a director of an industrial conglomerate formed without taking into account the opinion of the local community and at the expense of destroying the environment. This leads to numerous conflicts. Subjected to various pressures "from the top" and "bottom" the director is not able to rise to the occasion. Embittered, he resigns from his position and returns to his family. When the events of 1970 will unfold, he will stand with the workers.
