In short documentary, filmmaker Nadezhda Titova tries to separate her memories of Russia, her childhood and family from concepts such as patriotism and government. This is hard, it turns out.
Nadezhda Titova used to associate Russia with her family, childhood and identity. The current Russian government is a far cry from that, she feels. But how can you deal with relatives who are supporters of a regime that to you is intolerable? In this short documentary, the filmmaker gives vent to the gap between her and her family’s convictions, by means of fragments from the life of the family, interlaced with footage of the patriotic parade celebrating the victory of the Soviet Union over Nazi Germany.
