US PREMIERE  Newlyweds Natasha and Sasha are living a fairy tale until they decide to start Dozhd, the only independent TV station in Russia. Armed with charm, naivité, determination, and a team of doe-eyed journalists, Natasha embarks on a ten-year journey of growth and resistance that will make them all a government target. Dozhd’s coverage of the war in Ukraine, Navalny’s anti-corruption investigations, and the unveiling of Putin’s state propaganda profoundly change Natasha and her team.  – Ruth Somalo
