Revue is based on archive propaganda newsreels produced in the USSR in the 50-s and 60-s. The film shows the almost forgotten side of the Soviet times and the way of thinking at that period. It explores the life of people all across the vast expanse of the Soviet Motherland, though full of hardship, deprivation and absurd rituals, but at the same time illuminated by the glorious shining of the communist illusion.
