50 years after the death of Joseph Stalin this three-part series depicts a man that was stylized as loving father, omniscient and just leader for the people of the Soviet Union. But reality was different. Political opponents were deported to the GULAG and many people in Russia suffered from hunger and poverty. Propaganda was successfully used to keep those facts a secret. This documentary reveals those hidden facts of life in the former Soviet Union.
