ABOUT VICTORY DAY
Steeped in intrigue and sabotage, VICTORY DAY is a one-of-a-kind achievement, a modern drama-thriller played out against the beautiful and brutal landscapes of Eastern Europe and Russia from the 1990's to the present.
Sam Cassels (Sean Ramsay), a firebrand journalist with a short fuse has just been expelled from Russia, the adopted homeland that he loves, for punching out the Minister of Finance at a press conference.
Retrenching in Prague, Cassels soon finds that his troubles are only just beginning as he discovers that a Russian Oligarch (Milan Kolik), a man, in Cassels' eyes, clearly guilty for the wars and economic ruin of his country, is unbelievably close at hand. Raging for retribution, exposing the Oligarch - Igralski (Kolik) who is yet unpunished and un-denounced, becomes a suicidal fixation.
Photographing a street prostitute (Natalie Shiyanova) being abused and beaten by sex-slave traffickers, Cassels is drawn deeper into a world entwined with the shadow of the Oligarch. Rescuing her brings the key to a mission that will push him to the very edge of sanity and revenge!
Shot in Russia, the Czech Republic and Australia, the producers of VICTORY DAY have created an aesthetically stunning window into the momentous jolting changes of modern Russia...an insightful story that enchants as much as it reveals.
