    • Synopsis
    • The film is about a clash between soviet-bred workers and wild realities of Russian capitalism. The plot is based on a real story of today’s crisis when production owners sort out their problems by means of cutting workers’ wages which are already low. The film was shot in Cherepovets, Nizhny Novgorod, Yaroslavl, and in Moscow (ZIL factory and Fabrika project). 2010. Russia. This film is about a factory worker who joined a trade union to help his friends to stand for their rights. However, by force of circumstances, under the great pressure and threats, he betrays his followers and pays for it with his life. The idea is to show the duality of Russian mentality that paradoxically combines cruelty and placidity, loyalty to the agenda and betrayal, envy and friendship.
