Ludya is a diligent government employee and Communist Party member, whose unwavering loyalty is tested when a strike at a local factory escalates into a bloody conflict with the army, during which her teenage daughter goes missing. The true scale of the horrors that took place in 1962, in the small Soviet town of Novocherkassk, were only uncovered thirty years later. Shotin stark black and white, Konchalovsky peels back decades of secrecy and rhetoric, honouring those who were so tragically disappeared.
