In late 2011 – early 2012 Moscow witnessed mass protest events involving tens of thousands of people. The people’s discontent with the policy of authorities, with their irremovability from office, with manipulated elections and corruption, resulted in numerous rallies, actions and face-offs with police. The first part of the film is a research-chronicle of the collective protest body, of its movements in the city milieu, of typical situations arising between its participants and with the representatives of authorities. The return of politics to the streets of Russian cities marked the change in the existing contract between the authorities and the society. One of the most popular slogans of that time was: “You do not even imagine us.” Five years later, several activists tell the story how the participation in these events changed their lives. The protagonists include a defendant in the Bolotnaya case, the most massive political case of the last years, a female LGBT activist and a socialist historian.

Film study of the artistic practice of actionism as a collision of contemporary art with everyday reality. The film examines the historical background of the genre and its continuity in the modern cultural process. The plot is based on the history of the Pussy Riot group. The film shows that actionism, as a phenomenon, is at the intersection of art, history and politics. In the Pussy Riot action, one can see the continuation of the tradition of Russian holy fools who were not afraid to tell the hard truth even to tsars. The art of the Russian avant-garde drew its inspiration from icon painting, and the Suprematist images of Kazimir Malevich can be seen in the bright clothes of Pussy Riot.
