Set in 1991, at the fall of the Soviet Union, the Patriots play tracks Russia as the new country rises. Following political upheaval, there are winners and losers, and today’s patriot can fast become tomorrow’s traitor. Patriots follows billionaire businessman Boris Berezovsky from President Vladimir Putin’s inner circle to his role as public enemy number one, as Putin’s rise to dictatorial power soon made Berezovsky one of his fiercest critics.
