The story of Patriots
“If the politicians cannot save Russia, then we businessmen must. We have not just the responsibility but the duty to become Russian heroes”.
Patriots is set during The Fall of the Soviet Union, a time of tension, uncertainty and disarray. Under the ever-changing regimes of post-Soviet Russia, people are either winners or losers. Within minutes, today’s patriot can become tomorrow’s public enemy number one. Patriots explores the story of billionaire businessman Boris Berezovsky, amidst a new generation of oligarchs that threaten to seize political control. Watch as Berezovsky falls from a position of power and is forced to flee the new political regime of Russia.
