703AD, Byzantium. A peaceful farmer is accused of heresy and sentenced to 24 hours of mandatory prayer, locked in a medieval pillory. Due to an invasion in the area, the officials forget to release him. Alone in the middle of nowhere and unable to move, the farmer seeks help from a set of passers-by: a conservative family, an injured invader, a burning flock of sheep, a gang of children. As chances of survival become slimmer, the farmer needs to make peace with his impending death.
