The film takes a deeper look into Russian anti-Semitism by showing archival accounts of famous Russian actor, Solomon Mikhoels and of Russian Jewish doctors charged for attempting to poison Stalin. "The Doctor's Plot", Stalin's fabricated set-up and execution of Mikhoels proves the intensity of Stalin's rules and the political power wielded during that time period. Such calamitous events bring light to the paranoia, fear, and unrelenting tenacity of those who endured the era of Stalinism. Just as in Aranovich's The Anna Akhmatova File, I Worked for Stalin, and I was Stalin's Bodyguard, People's Gala Concert presents a portrait of traumatic events told through personal accounts. In Russian with English subtitles.
