Organised by the Ministry of Defence and the personal order of Vladimir Putin, the 2019 train exhibition “Syrian Breakthrough” transported the spoils of war from Syria around all the major cities in the country. Russian people live in a state of war, no matter with whom, no matter where, and no matter when or why. It begs the question, should the country be strong or worthy? People chose strong. Now is the time of power again, as Russians are fighting Ukranians and bombing Syria. The train covered 28,500 km on its 65-day journey, stopping in 62 towns. It was visited by a million people, who don’t care about the Syrian war, but were just there for the entertainment. This film seeks to show the ordinary life of these people, connecting their lives through the tracks of the train.
