FilmRUSSIA started right after the director received a phone call from a country teacher Mr. Tříska who found a journal of his grandfather who was captured in Russia almost a hundred years ago and later fought there as a legionary. The film follows his journey on the Trans-Siberian railway while the musician and amateur filmmaker enjoys random encounters. He travels as a cine eye-explorer, disguised as a cosmonaut with a video camera fastened on his helmet.
