The Idealist follows the story of Antti Penttinen, a Finnish idealist who sets off for Russia to pursue his dreams of contributing to communism and changing the world through song. Antti is soon confronted with a society rift with distrust. He struggles with his naïve idealism in a reality which is sinking into darkness.
