Synopsis

Andrey Kurganov co-writes and stars in this gay-themed Russian drama. After witnessing a brutal homophobic attack that leaves the victim critically ill in hospital, partners Anton (Renat Shuteev) and Vlad (Kurganov) set out to find those responsible. Set against the backdrop of Russia's infamous anti-homosexual propaganda law, and with the authorities turning a blind eye to the crime's motives, Anton risks his life to stand up for his rights and to seek justice for a killing he believes he was partly responsible for.
