“Novaya Gazeta” is one of the first independent publications of post-Soviet Russia and one of the last remaining today. It specializes in investigative reports and is a three times Nobel Prize nominee. Since 2000, five journalists and a lawyer of the editorial board have been murdered. NOVAYA is a peephole into the daily work of their colleagues, giving us front row seats during one of the hardest period of the paper‘s life. How will they respond to the kidnapping of one of their editors? How far will these journalists go in their search for truth, potentially endanging their own lives or the lives of their loved ones?
