The series helps to break down stereotypes and to understand the way of thinking, living conditions, social mechanisms and changes which have taken place in the East since the collapse of the Soviet Union. Each episode tells a different story of an individual who lived in a former USSR republic. All the episodes paint a full picture of problems which followed the collapse of the ‘Evil Empire’ in the East. Homelessness, alcoholism, free market, Catholicism, Islam, homeland security and sexual revolution are just a few examples of themes focused on in each episode of this series.
