Svitlana Shymko combines archival footage showing the solemn unveiling of monuments to Lenin during the Soviet era with contemporary images of their destruction, symbolically ending the period of Soviet and Russian domination in Ukraine. The past, the future and the present are united by astonishing archival footage featuring a seance with the ghost of Lenin himself.
