Year
2008
Country
Estonia, Finland
Duration
96’
Director
Aliona Polunina
It is Russia of 2007, a year before the next presidential elections. The opposition is set to act decisively and to take power. The two central figures, Anatoly and Andrey, are veteran revolutionaries. They have been members of a banned political organization for more than 10 years. Politics, however, only serves as the background to the main action, providing the environment in which the protagonists exist. It’s a story of arrogance, betrayal and the start of a new life.
