Nina Guseva's gripping film follows dauntless lawyer Maria Eismont as she takes on the case of a young political activist arrested for repeatedly joining anti-government demonstrations in Moscow, in 2019.

As tireless as she is fearless, Eismont battles through Russia's legal system, on behalf of her client, and all protestors who have called for fair elections.

All her media appearances come to nothing, and each appeal is rejected—until Putin suddenly appears on the scene.
