SYNOPSIS

 Atchinsk, 2500 miles away from Moscow.

In a household almost in the suburbs of the city, inhabitants pass each other in the stairways. They are not really kin on talking politics. Especially not about the present campaign for presidential elections. Outside, the city is stuck on a cold winter. Only remains a remote sound of a radio echoing anti-government demonstrations going on in Moscow. These images of a sleeping city meet the ones of paid-activists working for Putin’s party. Iouri, political hireling working for “United Russia” explains me coldly the inner mechanic of the system, pouring more and more vodka into our glasses. Somehow, democratic life appears to be a theatre…
