A sequel to Shattered Mirror, relates the human story behind the October 1993 armed confrontation in Moscow, when the future of the Russian nation hung in the balance. Rather than chronicling political events, Goldvskaya uses her personal style of film making to take the viewer deep into the "inner life" of Russian society during this extraordinary period.

We visit and watch with many of her friends and acquaintances as the momentous events unfold. Unable to remain inside while violent confrontations rage, Goldvskaya boldly takes her camera into the streets to film dramatic street demonstrations and the attempted rebel seizure of a television station where she worked for many years.

But the film is more than the story of this confrontation of political forces. It is the story of a nation searching for a new way, a moral center, as it moves rapidly towards an unknown future, creating great pain and social division. Yet, as the title reflects, Goldvskaya's view remains a hopeful one.
