Plot synopsis
Butovsky shooting range is a sacred place. It has turned to a “Russian Golgotha” from a 1930s NKVD special site; now it’s a place of grief for those whose relatives and friends went through the terrible times of repressions.

Commentaries and bibliography
 
Winner of "Zolotoy Vityaz" film festival. At the outskirts of the Butovo part of the south of Moscow is the former firing range of the NKVD, where from the 1930's and until the beginning of the 1950's, tens of thousands of people were shot and buried. This area became the Russian Golgotha, a place of mourning for those, whose relatives did not survive the repression years. A few hundred of them have recently been granted sainthood as martyrs. In the mid-1990's this area was given to the Russian Orthodox Church. A new church was built there in honor of the New Martyrs and Confessors of Russia. The film is shown out of competition. The screening is sponsored by NTS (USA).
