Directed by a well-known Russian film director Alexander Kott, the TV drama centers on Leo Trotsky (played by Konstantin Khabensky), one of the most powerful figures of Russian revolution. One of its leaders and creator of the Red army, he was later expelled by Stalin from USSR. After a few years of wandering around the world, Trotsky finally found asylum in Mexico. In his memories Trotsky comes back to the major events of his life, unfolding not only personal details and feelings, but having the birth of a new state called USSR at the background.

Action of the TV series takes place in three different periods of time  - from 1898 to 1940, to fully reveal the ambiguous personality of the man who had blood of millions on his hands, yet stayed faithful to his ideas till the very end and managed to change the world. He was a friend of Frida Kalo and knew Freud personally, having met all sorts of people in his lifetime and telling the story of the whole epoch. 

Magnificent work of Konstantin Khabensky, one of the greatest Russian actors of present time, fully discloses the formation of such an impressive yet controversial personality as had Leo Trotsky. Konstantin will present the project on stage, along with Olga Sutulova (main female part), at the Premiere.
