Svetlana Tikhanovskaya is today a world-famous European politician, a symbol of change and a free Belarus. The film presents her political career from the moment she registered as a presidential candidate until the first days of her forced emigration to Lithuania. A woman without experience and political support, an unknown housewife, thanks to her natural philanthropy gained the support of the majority of Belarusians. Viewers can follow Svetlana as she runs her election campeign and gets closer to her voters across Belarus. Despite all the intrigues against her and threats against her friends, relatives and colleagues, Svetlana becomes a focused and self-confident leader of Belarus, even when she is outside her native country, in Vilnius.
