Narrated by Daryl Hannah, Pussy Riot - The Movie is the first comprehensive film telling the full story of the remarkable women of Pussy Riot, a punk rock group that defied a strongman, survived Russian prisons and rallied the world behind them. Beginning with the arrest of Nadia Tolokonnikova, Masha Alykohina and Katia Samustsevich on a dark street in Moscow and continuing through the two-year imprisonment of Nadia and Masha, their "early" release and continued activism at the Sochi Olympics and throughout Russia and the world, this powerful film examines the perversion of the Russian Constitution by ex-KGB officer and President Vladimir Putin, and explores the entrenched nationalism of the Russian people.
