A strike commences 1962 Novocherkassk when the Communist government raises the price of food, a revolt to which Soviet troops respond by promptly gunning down demonstrators in one of the era's bloodiest massacres. During the chaos, a woman, Lyuda, loses track of her daughter, and sets off intent on finding her. However, she hits a brick wall when she realizes the KGB, in an effort to maintain the appearance of a strong and loyal workforce, is denying that the protest ever took place. "Dear Comrades!" is available December 25, 2020.
