In Belarus — a country of authoritarianism, the death penalty, and poverty — 19-year-old Diana died in the arms of her boyfriend Ilya from an ecstasy overdose. Her friends were too afraid to call an ambulance. Only Anton reached for help, understanding that he would face up to 25 years in prison. As Belarus is waging a merciless war on drugs, thousands of young people are sent off to serve jail sentences longer than half of their lives. Article 328 is the infamous ‘anti-drug’ part of the Criminal Code. While enduring jail, investigations, psychiatric clinics, and trials, two boys and three girls come face to face with a sense of guilt and loss and the real jail terms which they find unfair. Today music, friends, and psychotherapy help them cope with the tragedy and regain control over their life.
