Until the beginning of the 1990s, there were a very few rap artists in Russia and the Soviet Union. In the middle of the 1990s, a lot of boys throughout Russia started performing hip hop music, many of them had ended up working on factories in the former closed cities. Filmmaker asked several former hip-hop musicians, some still having factory jobs, to remember their old rhythms silently, and paired it with a spontaneous hip hop jam of young people living near the factories of Nizhny Tagil and Yekaterinburg on a second screen. Their voices dissolve like smoke in the back streets of Ural cities, gigantic open-air factories.
