A film by Federico Ferrone and Michele Manzolini

The Train to Moscow chronicles the end of an era and the end of a dream through the eyes of Sauro Ravaglia, an amateur film-maker, barber and communist. Sauro and his friends dream of a world of peace, brotherhood, and equality: they dream of the Soviet Union. A once in a lifetime opportunity comes their way when they have the chance of attending the World Festival of Socialist Youth in Moscow. Sauro and his friends arm themselves with an 8mm camera to film their great  journey.  What happens when they come face to face with their utopian dream?
