Anya était une adolescente ordinaire qui rêvait d'améliorer la condition des citoyens russes. En mars 2018, elle est arrêtée et incarcérée, accusée d'avoir formé un groupe extrémiste dans le but de renverser violemment le gouvernement. Durant les trois années qui suivent l’arrestation d’Anya, sa mère Julia lutte désespérément pour prouver l'innocence de sa fille. Julia passe, malgré elle, du statut de citoyenne apolitique à celui de défenseure des droits humains.

Projection suivie d’une discussion avec la réalisatrice !
