This film is about Anna Politkovskaya, who had spent seven years on frontline and put herself in danger so often. She felt very lonely, but could never stop doing what she did. We follow her, together with her thoughts and dreams. We see the same images she saw and we meet the same people she met, people who she always kept thinking about. In those last seven years of frontlines, she was always going somewhere: to Chechnya, Beslan, or wherever. In order to understand Annaâ€™s work and duties, together with her character, her fears and feelings of loneliness, we meet three other women, each of them stood by her during hard times and moments of weakness.
