A well-known Belarusian journalist is hospitalized after being beaten by the police.

Produced literally just a few days after the outbreak of mass protests in Belarus, the film features the story of a well-known Belarusian TV journalist. Andrei Kutsila watches her in the hospital, where she ended up after being beaten by the police during a demonstration against the rigged elections. Why, with so much to lose, did she decide to risk her position, and how does she envision the future?
