A tireless caretaker of the Nemtsov bridge visits the improvised site day after day, a memorial set up by volunteers by the Kremlin walls at the place where opposition politician Boris Nemtsov died in a blatant political killing. This caretaker gives his time to protect the memorial from vandals who have repeatedly tried to tear it down. He tries to keep this memorial, already a symbol of outrage at political murders in Russia, going. However, the Russian authorities have stood opposed to the memorial and have tried in every way to do away with it. This caretaker resists pressure from the authorities and continues to protect the memorial year after year.
