Russian activists Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Ekaterina Samutsevich decide to separate from the well-known activist group Voina and create their own group named PUSSY RIOT that would express their ideas of female independence, combining activism, feminism and punk rock music. Pussy Riot quickly draws public attention after a show on the Lobnoye Mesto in the Red Square where they accuse the authorities of sexism, singing the song "Putin Turned Chicken." This performance lands them in a police station amid much mass media attention. Pussy Riot then decide to conduct a punk rock church service in the Moscow Cathedral of Christ the Saviour, sparking interest from journalists and cameramen who manage to film it. Three of the girls are arrested and threatened with seven years in prison, as a number of world stars express their support for the artists including the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Paul McCartney, Madonna and Franz Ferdinand. They are offered liberty if they agree to confess and repent for their "crime". Refusing to budge, the court sentences them instead to two years in prison. Their defeat in court becomes their moral victory, as Pussy Riot are cheered on by thousands of their new-found fans and supporters worldwide.
