Director Daniel Roher explores the life & work of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny, who, after years of campaigning against corruption, has developed powerful enemies - including President Vladimir Putin. In August 2020, Navalny was secretly poisoned w/ a military-grade chemical nerve agent in a shockingly brazen attempt on his life. After being transferred to Germany for medical attention, a recovering Navalny worked closely w/ international news organizations Bellingcat & CNN to investigate the crime, ultimately linking the poison to Russian security services, despite denials from the Kremlin. Eye-opening & revelatory, Navalny chronicles the politician & activist's brave stand against the government that tried to silence him - & his never-ending fight for democracy.
