In 2013 Russia passed a law against "promoting homosexuality" to young people. Young gays and lesbians became an "error of the system" and their bullying was authorised at the highest levels. The Children 404 website established by Elena Klimova publishes messages from young people who are the victims of brutal attacks due to their sexual orientation. The filmmakers gave some of these children cameras in order to record their lives. The video journals interspersed with interviews present a chilling picture of contemporary Russia. While in Russia, Klimova faces persecution and screenings of Children 404 are broken up by the police, the film received a standing ovation at the prestigious Hot Docs festival and the audience award at the Mezipatra Queer Film Festival in the Czech Republic.
