A surprising story of oppression told with remarkable access and clarity.
When Albania broke with the USSR in 1960, Russians living there suddenly became personae non grata. Couples in mixed marriages were forcibly separated through exile and imprisonment. Thousands of marriages ended this way.
This distressing story is told not just by the survivors, but also by the apparatchiks and secret police who enforced this extraordinary policy.
Controversial Bulgarian documentarian Adela Peeva has unearthed an astonishing tale of heart-breaking state cruelty.
