Natasha Merkulova and Alexey Chupov give with their film Captain Volkonogov Escaped a feast for the yes, a strong political statement, and a fast paced and entertaining vision of the power. A film about moral, redemption and self-consciousness, wrapped in a hyper-pop fun paper, to enjoy thoroughly.

Captain Volkonogov Escaped: Captain Fedor Volkonogov is part of the law enforcement system. He is appreciated by the commander and respected by colleagues. But the moment comes for Captain’s life to take the abrupt turn—he is criminally charged. Captain manages to escape prior to the arrest turning in a split of the second into prey hunted down by ex-colleagues. At night Fedor receives the warning from the afterlife that he is destined for Hell and eternal torments. Though Captain still has a chance to change the destiny and be accepted to Heaven under condition that he repents and at least one person grants him sincere forgiveness. Fedor sets on a mission to find absolution having no idea of the trials he is to face on this route.
