Is it possible to tell about Putin's Russia with its contradictions and problems in 29 minutes? Certainly, not. VICTORY DAY looks at one part of today's Russia through its protagonists' stories. In 2013 the Russian State Duma passed a law forbidding propaganda supporting non-traditional sexual relationship among minors. This law led to an intensification of homophobic feeling in society. There is a military parade is marching outside while the protagonists are sitting in their cozy apartments and telling us about their lives since the law was adopted. "After the Jews and queers”, - one of them says, - all that's missing is a law against witches". Welcome to the Middle Ages, welcome to Russia today.
