What if your emotions were illegal? This specific question is a struggle for Olya and Galiya, a lesbian couple who lives in Russia. Olya is a fighter and an active member of the local LGBT-society. Galiya refuses to let politics control her life. Their love is solid, and the want to have a baby together. When the Russian government launched their discriminating law against homosexuality, Olyas battle becomes even bigger. Her relationship with Galiya is also put to the test.
Documentarist Kirill Sakharnov follows the two protagonists in their daily life, out in the street and in their private home. When during a demonstration a battling Olya persists in talking to a policeman who remains silent, then her voice seems to collide against Putin’s state apparatus; but still, she makes her voice heard. And she knows that for the path to true democracy, as well as to her own happiness, every step counts, literally.
