    • Synopsis
    • Miron is 23. His true passion is music – rock music in fact.
      During one of his concerts, the excitement triggers off an anti-regime protest among the young audience.
      Miron as the leader of the band is considered responsible for the uproar and in spite of a genetic heart desease he is drafted to serve a 15 month period into the Bielorussian army as punishment for fomenting political unrest.
      Sent to a remote area unit, Miron will face living conditions below basic human needs whilst a brainwashing indoctrination is forced daily upon him and his comrades.
      Through a carefully hidden mobile phone, Miron manages to make his girlfriend Viera aware of the day to day life of a conscript soldier.
      His diary, that includes some satirical words accompanied by music, is posted by Viera on the internet, and soon becomes a real hit among young people.
      Only possibility for the regime is to discredit and crush Miron, and they will try to do it with a vengeance.
