Plot synopsis
The film’s main character, a Chechen man named Ruslan, has been involved in all the military conflicts of recent years: Ichkeria, Abkhazia, Tiraspol, the Maidan, Crimea and the Donetsk Basin. War is his natural habitat; it has formed his lifestyle, his thought process and his feelings. Avoiding embellishment or moralization, the director creates a hard, honest image of the “new abrek” – a man of absolute freedom, and one who is prepared to fight for this freedom in any country, against any regime. A man living outside the state, outside the law, outside of any race or tribe. A man who is passionate in battle, and indifferent to the comforts of home. Accented in a socio-political way, the camera creates a subtle and precise psychological portrait of a Maidan “foot soldier”, setting him against the historical cataclysms the society he belongs to is undergoing. Just as it happens in the classic stories about the “freeabrek“, a quiet teacher – a figure from another type of world altogether – captures his attention and reorients him toward actual life.
