It's 1962 in Novocherkassk, a provincial town in the south of the USSR.

Lyudmila, a devout Communist Party official, is taken by surprise by a strike at the local factory where her daughter works.

As government forces violently retaliate and events begin to spiral out of control, Lyudmila begins a desperate search for her daughter.


"DEAR COMRADES! is shot in black-and-white and in near-square image dimensions instead of wide-screen. Even the choice of angles, with an emphasis on doorways and private spaces, contributes to the sense of lives lived furtively." Ben Kenigsberg. A New York Times Critic's Pick!
