The Russian Social Forum run parallel to the G8 Summit in Saint Petersburg at Kirov Stadium, in July 2006.
Before it opened the Russian security service held operation "Barrier," detaining more than 200 forum delegates from all over Russia on their way to Petersburg.
Those who made in convened under close surveillance by the authorities, who made an offer that couldn't be refused: to hold the forum at a defunct football stadium slated for demolition.
Everyone was sure that the authorities allocated this easily isolatable site on purpose, in order to keep the situation under control. Even before the forum began, the FSB and the police were blackmailing activists, demanding that they not take part in any protests and the forum.
Most print shops refused to print information about the forum and people were arrested for handing out leaflets. The authorities did their best to make sure that even minimal participation in the forum would seem risky.
The film covers the situation that has happened at the stadium during Social Forum discussed with a series of interviews with leading and ordinary Russian political activists.
