The poet Natalya Gorbanevskaya (1936-2013) gained wide popularity primarily as a member of the dissident movement and one of the legendary eight who, on August 25, 1968, went to Red Square to protest against the invasion of Soviet troops in Czechoslovakia, paying for it with several years in prison. Gorbanevskaya was often called a heroine. She retorted, "I'm not a heroine, I'm an ordinary person." The authors of the film show several episodes from the life of Natalia Gorbanevskaya, wondering what kind of poet, woman, mother she was, and how her fate was after forced emigration from the USSR.
