After Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny falls deathly ill on a plane in 2020, doctors confirm that he has been poisoned with Novichok, a nerve agent used in attacks on other dissidents. Despite Putin's vociferous denials of involvement, Navalny (still recovering), investigative journalism outlet Bellingcat, and others investigate his attempted assassination and discover a stunning smoking gun implicating the Kremlin. Daniel Roher's NAVALNY is a must-see documentary thriller that reveals a courageous and controversial would-be president who will sacrifice everything to reform Russia.
