This participatory documentary performance is about the boundaries of personality in terms of dictatorship and repressive state politics.

It is based on the statements of citizens who have remained in Russia, who are against the regime and the war and who continue their resistance from the inside. The audience plays an active role in the performance: using the instructions, they affect the dramaturgy of action to a certain extent. Together with the performer, they create the space for co-existing and togetherness in a collective reflection of how it is to live inside a dictatorship with aggressive internal and external policies.
