Twenty-two-year-old Gavrilo Princip - assassin of the Archduke Franz Ferdinand and the Duchess Sophie - is sick and dying in prison. He is visited by a psychiatrist, Dr Cistler, who accuses him of sacrificing his own people to war and slaughter. To his surprise, Cistler discovers Princip's regret is not for his deeds or convictions, but for the life he has left behind.
