Synopsis

Belarus, Winter 2015. The omnipotent president Lukachenko is starting his campaign looking for a 5th mandate. Meanwhile Kostia celebrates his 18th birthday and gets ready to vote for the first time. He takes us around in his village and among his relatives as they all try to understand and conceive their country and their future. “Mayskaya Street” is the second documentary by Gabriel Tejedor, an independent print and radio journalist who works for Radio Télévision Suisse (RTS).
