Last year, Vladimir Putin was controversially reelected president of Russia. In response, hundreds of thousands of citizens rose up to challenge the legitimacy of his rule. Among them was a group of young, radical feminist punk rockers better known as Pussy Riot. Wearing colored balaclavas and summer dresses, they entered Moscow’s most venerated cathedral and dared to sing “Mother Mary, Banish Putin!” This film shows how one small act of protest grew to become an international story of human rights abuse. Three members of Pussy Riot are imprisoned, prepared to defend their actions no matter the cost—but who is really on trial, these young artists or the society they live in?
