Some time ago they would come here to walk their dogs, play with their kids or jog. They are two hostile parties now. Every Sunday, half of them come to pray by a wooden cross, and another half is there to defend a spot of land, which they want to stay public.

The film focuses on a story of Torfyanka, a small park where contention between the believers and park defenders has turned into a severe struggle with night watches, physical fights and mutual offence.

Curator's point of view: Some want to build the temple, others want to disown the temple. The conflict in one of the parks of Moscow is shown as a symbol of previous, current and future days of Russia.
