Nearly 18 years after the events at the Dubrovka Theatre Centre, Natalia comes to Moscow from her quiet monastic life. Having received a blessing, she brings together the former hostages of the musical show “Nord-Ost” to hold a memorial evening of the tragedy, whose victims they became on 23-26 October 2002. Recreating the details and chronology of events, Natalia plunges into terrible details of her personal story, her fatal mistake, which crossed out her life. Together with other participants of the event and overcoming a post-traumatic syndrome, she must go again through this emotional experience.
