This documentary has an eerie and surreal feel to it. Hundreds of Russians going to a theater in downtown Moscow to enjoy a musical. Certainly, none had any idea about what was about to transpire. Chechnyan terrorists would storm the stage and take the whole theater hostage. At first, the audience thought it was part of the show, but it was all too real. For several days, the audience sat in their seats, not allowed to move, as women dressed in all black with bombs strapped to them sat at the end of each row. Several men patrolled with machine guns, assuring all that they would in fact die soon. The hostages would run the gambit of emotions, fear, anger, sadness and finally apathy.
