Film about the brutal Soviet penal camps under the rule of the dictator Josef Stalin.
The 32-year-old Juir Dud travelled from Magadan on the Pacific to Jakutsk in Siberia to speak with descendants of Gulag prisoners. Gulag is an abbreviation for “main administration of the camps” and still symbolizes the reign of terror of Stalin.
Prisoners had to build roads in all weathers and also mine gold or uranium. 20 million prisoners were accommodated in the camps, about two million people died.
