Young German documentary filmmaker Sebastian Heinzel set off by train to the capital of Belarus, Minsk and decided to discover how his peers live there. With no ambition to paint a picture of the Lukashenko dictatorship, the director instead decided to examine the daily life of six young people with different ideas, fates and social backgrounds. Slava lives with Pavel, a decorator in a grey apartment block on the edge of Minsk and while they complain about a lack of freedom, they do not specifically mention politics. Twenty-one-year-old Alexandr, despite the danger of imprisonment, organizes protest demonstrations and is actively involved in the opposition movement. Additionally, the red-haired student of journalism Ludmila and twenty-two-year-old Olga, who studies movement theatre and earns extra money at a striptease bar, also have opinions about freedom of speech in Belarus. On the other hand Igor, a private in the army, is convinced that Lukashenko is the right man for the job. The documentary's lively style of filming utilizes songs from Belarus' rock bands and offers a portrait of the young post-Soviet generation divided into stagnation, resistance to the regime, and planning for emigration.
