Based on true events unfolding in Libya right now, the action thriller 'Shugalei' tells a story of Russian sociologist Maxim Shugalei and translator Samer Sweifan, who were captured in May 2019 by terrorists on the orders of the Government of National Accord, and are currently held in a Libyan prison. Privy to information that could bear serious consequences for the puppet government, the researchers were subjected to torture and denied justice. The film pays tribute to these real-life heroes and raises awareness of their fate.
