Plot synopsis
This film is about Soviet dissidents, who within a totalitarian regime fought to defend their basic human rights. Their relentlessness led to jail sentences and sometimes even cost them their lives. Today few remember them, and their favorite toast “to the success of our hopeless cause!” has almost been forgotten. But if it weren’t for them, there would have been no historic changes in the Soviet Union in the 80s, and there would have been no hope for a rebirth and freedom. https://rusdocfilmfest.org/2019-movies-en
