The naval academy of St. Petersburg is the focus of this warts-and-all hourlong documentary. Komrades examines the sometimes loyal, sometimes unhinged life of the modern-day recruit in Russia, and contrasts these frank interviews with archived stock footage and training films produced by the government.
