Movie synopsis: Aloof Alex spends most of his time at a computer. Known as Koss in a local game club, he builds a reputation as a player of Quake. Yet outside virtual reality, his life is just as bleak as the area he lives in. His gaming is getting in the way of his education and Alex's single mother is worried about her son's future. After participating in one of the tournaments, he is offered membership in a professional gaming team, and the boy sets his ambitions and talent on winning a world championship. Would such a victory provide a solution to his life situation? Oleg Sentsov shot the Ukrainian drama at real gaming tournaments and cast actual gamers.


As a part of the AutoMaidan movement, director Oleg Sentsov actively participated in the Ukrainian protests and was also involved in food and supply deliveries to Ukrainian soldiers blocked at Crimean bases. In May 2014, he was arrested by the Russian Federal Security Service on suspicion of plotting terrorist attacks. Although the Russian side claims that Sentsov has confessed, the director along with his lawyer, Dmitry Dinze (also defended the members of Pussy Riot) deny this and state that Sentsov was beaten and threatened with rape to force him to confess. A wave or protests against the arrest among European filmmakers resulted in a letter to Vladimir Putin, requesting the filmmaker's release. The letter, as well as the appeal to Russia's Presidential Council for Human Rights to review the case, and appeals to Amnesty International, have had little or no effect.
