The documentary tells the story of Ukrainian filmmaker Oleg Sentsov and activist Sasha Kolchenko, who were detained in Crimea during the conflict in 2014. Despite international protests, they were convicted of plotting terrorist acts and sent to Russian prisons. The film accompanies Sentsov’s sister, following the same route endured by the Ukrainian prisoners after their detention four years ago.
