Faithful Ruslan: The Story of a Guard Dog
An extraordinary satire on the Stalinist regime in Russia seen through the eyes of a guard dog, this is a modern 'Animal Farm' for the world of Trump, May and Putin. When Josef Stalin dies in 1953, the inhabitants of prison camps across Russia are liberated. Prisoners, guards and guard dogs are all free to go home. But with life in the Service all he has ever known, loyal guard dog Ruslan remains at his post and faithful to the Master, even as he gives his final unthinkable order.
