The filmmakers reveal the content of the internal party struggle in the period following the XIV Congress of the CPSU (b). The new opposition, which united in its ranks yesterday's irreconcilable rivals (G.E. Zinoviev, L.B. Kamenev and L.D. Trotsky), met with resistance from the party majority headed by I.V. Stalin, N.N. Bukharin and AI. Rykov. At the 15th Congress, the leading oppositionists are expelled from the party.
