How do Belarusian politics, the waning glory of poetry, and the navel of the sky relate to each other? Director Radim Procházka explores the presidential candidacy of renowned Belarusian poet Uladzimir Nyaklyaev during the manipulated 2010 elections. After the police brutally beat and disperse protestors on Independence Square, the poet ends up under house arrest. Thanks to poetry, however, he can escape and fight.
