“Zulmat” means “tragedy” in the Kazakh language. The famine of the 1920-30s in Soviet Kazakhstan was a genuine genocide of this nation, once the largest among Asian nations of the Soviet Union. As a result of the “Zulmat” about 4 million people died in just ten years. The film tells about this horrible tragedy, about the Soviet Union’s repressive collectivization, and the brutality of Stalin’s dictatorship.
