Plot synopsis
This film is about a factory worker, who has organized an independent trade union with his comrades to help workers defend their rights; but under threats, blackmailed and by virtue of other circumstance he becomes a traitor for the people who trust him, and pays for it with his life. The plot is based on real events of today’s crisis, when production owners solve their problems on the back of the workforce, which has recently become impoverished. The idea consists in the display of the duality of the Russian character, which paradoxically merges cruelty and complacency, fidelity and treachery, envy and mutual help. The film presents a cultural reflection on Russia’s modern condition in view of its history and the spiritual baggage that has accumulated over several generations.
