In the Russian republic of Chechnya, LGBTQ people are seriously threatened. A group of activists are determined to help them flee the country and find a safe home, even if it means putting their own lives at risk. The unimaginable and deadly brutality that LGBTQ people suffer is shown raw and direct in the film, but the anonymity of those involved is protected through the use of a new, AI-generated digital technology.
