Story
This documentary examines the silencing of voices of dissent in Russia. Like her friend Anna Politkovskaya, journalist and human rights defender Natacha, or Natalya Estemirova sought to publicise what was happening in war ridden Chechnya. Her fight for justice ended up in several death threats from Chechen president Ramzan Kadyrov. In July 2009, Estemirova was found dead by the side of the road near Grozny.
