Plot synopsis
It is Russia of 2007, a year before the next presidential elections. The opposition is set to act decisively and to seize power. The two central figures, Anatoly and Andrey, are veteran revolutionaries. They have been members of a banned political organization for more than 10 years. Politics, however, server only as the background for the main action, providing the environment in which the protagonists exist.
It’s a story of arrogance, betrayal and start of a new life.
