This documentary profiles Russian filmmaker Alexander Medvedkin, a lifelong Communist. Conversations with Medvedkin, his offspring and upstart Russian film students are shown alongside scenes from many of Medvedkin's works, which were made amidst the turbulent political backdrop of his home country. Medvedkin discusses how he continued to direct satirical comedies that parodied the ups and downs of his nation's government, even as Stalin rose to power and Russia became a totalitarian state.
