A nostalgic story about the 70’s, which are gone, never to return. Popular tunes of the “Gems” and black-marketers in jeans and discs are the unforgettable signs of that life. “Russian Ragtime” is not only a memory of youth but also an attempt to understand that time and the destiny of those people with love. Oh, how the guy from Zhmerinka wanted to go to America! To realize his lifelong dream, Misha was ready to undergo any trial, but he didn’t think that he would end up in the torture rooms of the KGB.
