A true icon of the human rights movement in Russia, Lyudmila Alexeyeva was also a stunning storyteller. In this film we see her as a lively and captivating woman, and we learn the source of inspiration for her “poems”. Most important, however, we see how even though she grew up a model Soviet schoolgirl and member of the Communist Party, she later went on to be a co-founder of the Moscow Helsinki Group, which is still Russia’s leading human rights organization. This film is a fascinating journey filled with complex historical scenes that give us a chance to ponder wisdom, compassion, human dignity and love.
