In Russia, where repressive laws make it difficult to speak up without ramifications, protesting is a dangerous act. Queer artist Gena (Jenna) Marvin takes protesting to a whole new level, using performance art as an act of resistance. From a small town in Russia, Gena dons herself in otherworldly costumes — platform boots, body paint, and barbed wire are just some of the elements she uses — and protests the government on the streets of Moscow. Staging radical performances in public, her creative acts of courage become a new form of art and activism. The provoking performances challenge the people and systems around her, but also put her life in incredible danger.
