The documentary unfolds like a thriller as activists with the Russian LGBT Network enter Chechnya to exfiltrate gay people in danger of being tortured or killed by Chechen authorities.
Chechen singer Zelim Bakaev disappeared in Chechnya on 8 August 2017. He was kidnapped, tortured and killed because of his homosexuality.
Zelim beautifully sung love... In one of his poetic songs he delivered a beautiful testimony of love to his mother for being "the only one who took him as he was".
May his face & voice be remembered.
May his talent be remembered.
Zelim sings here in his mother tongue (Chechen).
