As the Covid-19 pandemic reaches Russia the government imposes a strict round-the-clock curfew on its population of elderly. Millions are stranded in their flats, some without immediate family, access to medication and even food. A municipal helpline is established for those seeking help in this extraordinary situation and we listen into some of the hundreds of phone calls received each day. These short conversations give a rare insight into the anxieties of those who grew up in Soviet Union and have largely been left to fend for themselves after the fall of communism.

This film was nominated for Doc Alliance Award 2021 by Millennium Docs Against Gravity.
