It is 5:20 in the morning in Moscow. Heavily armed police storm the apartment of 17-year-old Anya. Accused of extremism, the teenager soon finds herself trembling like a hunted animal, sealed off behind thick glass in a courtroom. Her undoing? The young protagonist discussed Russian politics and social issues with her friends in the "The New Greatness" chat group. Henceforth, Anya's mother fights tirelessly together with courageous activists for her daughter's freedom. THE NEW GREATNESS CASE offers a rare glimpse into the inner-Russian resistance struggle against an overpowering and intimidating system that silences people.
