In her fearless quest to uncover the wrongdoings of Russian authorities, Anna Politkovskaya inspired awe in some and fear in others. An investigative journalist for Moscow’s liberal Novaya Gazeta, she was often the only spokesperson for innocent victims. At age 48 she was assassinated for simply doing her job. Shot within a period of 20 years this film creates an incredible story of a woman who consciously gave her life for her convictions.
