Plot synopsis
Vladimir Ovchinnikov is the ‘Russian Banksy’ – a street artist and a political activist. Because of his art, hundreds of tourists have visited Borovsk, an old Russian town. On the town’s walls he paints the portraits of famous Russian writers and historical figures, as well as photographs of Borovsk’s citizens killed during Stalin’s dictatorship. These painted images, however, are regularly destroyed by officials. But the will of the artist is irrepressible, and he recreates them over and over again.
