The film tells of the beginning of the career of Viktor Tsoi and the group Kino, about his relationship with Mike (“Maik”) Naumenko, the latter’s wife Natalia and many of those who were at the vanguard of the Leningrad rock movement in 1981. It is the history of Leningrad in the 1980s, of love, search and expectations, of the mood that remains with us forever. The film is full of music through which the heroes live and breathe: Kino, “Maik”, and the cult tracks of that time.
