Faced with the relentless demise of the factory they work at, Mikhail, Andrey, Nina, Vladimir, Nadia and Luda – bosses, foremen, engineers and workers of the giant Moscow automobile plant ZIL – cling to established routines and professional pride to stay upright in a world which crumbles around them.

When an order comes in for the production of three of the factory’s legendary hand-made limousines, once the center-piece of Soviet military parades on Moscow’s Red Square, Mikhail’s team of hand-picked specialists throws itself at the opportunity to show what they are worth.

In co-production with Marina Razbezhkina Studio (RU) and Aljazeera in association with NRK (NO) and YLE (FI). Supported by the Ministry Of Culture of Russia.
