“Attempt on the State”

One family’s tragedy through the historic prism of the whole country. Can you imagine a European state where people live under total control of intelligence services? And those, who dared to stand up against the system, are physically destroyed! Spouses Vladimir Vashkevich and Inara Vilkaste have lived through this “Orwellian” nightmare. Terror acts, political murders, kidnappings, corruption in upper echelons of power, - the world where human rights mean nothing.
