The Moscow metro is one of the ten largest subways in the world. It covers more than 400 km and welcomes 7 million passengers a day. Many stations resemble exhibition halls or cathedrals, with the dramatic history of Soviet Russia depicted on its walls. Nowadays, the underground reality of the subway reflects the reality of the world above. This is a road movie encapsulated in the Moscow metro system and filmed over the course of one year: a documentary film that observes cultural and social issues in modern Russia. It is a study with elements of absurdist tragicomedy, with no central characters; instead, it is a wide-angle portrait of society with all the joys and challenges that it entails.
