Summary "How does art survive in a time of oppression? During the Soviet rule artists who stay true to their vision are executed, sent to mental hospitals or gulags. Their plight inspires young Igor Savitsky. He pretends to buy state-approved art but instead daringly rescues 40,000 forbidden fellow artists' works and creates a museum in the desert of Uzbekistan, far from the watchful eyes of the KGB"--Container.
