Producer: Bernat Manzano
The old Russian city of Tolyatti is nowadays the poorest one in Russia. It was known for its car industry. Currently it's a deteriorated place, stuck in the past and with the highest youth unemployment rates out of all the country. In this desolated context arises Boyevaya Klassika, a teenager's movement based on the idea of rescuing the old cars from the local factory. They turn them into a distraction, rebelliousness and expression towards hope. Tolyatti Adrift wants to explore the conflicts and dreams of the youth in this city. Even though they have been thrown into a place where there seems to be no hope, the group is able to start a true movement of expression.
