After taking a wrong turn in their car, a young gay Russian couple witness what they believe is a vicious gay bashing. Their quandary over what to do about it propels them into ever more dangerous territory. For Anton, the burden of what they may have witnessed outweighs Vlad’s fear of probing too deeply into the incident. Convinced of the police’s indifference, Anton talks his skeptical lover into launching their own amateur investigation into the hate crime.

This film contains graphic depictions of homophobic violence.
