Synopsis

Sex and love; rejection and acceptance; passion and depravity – for anyone pushed to the fringes of society, these emotions can often become indistinguishable.

“Outlaw” tells the story of gay teen Nikita (Viktor Tarasenko), who is in love with the most popular boy in his school (Gleb Kalyuzhnyy). Rebellious outlaw (Elizaveta Kashintseva), to whom anything appears to be permissible, watches on as their relationship develops. Simultaneously, we follow the tragic love story of a transgender dancer Nina (Evgeny Shwartzman) and a Soviet general (Vitaly Kudryavtsev), set in 1985.

Distributing films portraying homosexuality in a positive light was made punishable by Russian law in 2013.
