In this one-hour special taped on a camcorder in 1990 and 1991, Huell goes behind the Iron Curtain to visit the charismatic people of Moscow during a very exciting time in Russian history. He explores the largest outdoor swimming pool, where people swim in the heart of snowy winters; stops by an outdoor pet market with beautiful Russian dogs and cats; and checks out a gym, record store, and barber shop.
Huell records the aftermath of the attempted coup on a second trip to the Russian capital. He sees graffiti on the Russian White House and the pedestal where Lenin's statue once stood, and witnesses the dawning of a new political era and the excitement of the people of Russia.
