Summary This year's Eurovision Song Contest was held in Baku in Azerbaijan. The oil and gas-rich former Soviet Republic secured the contest after winning the previous year. When the President of Azerbaijan declared the victory a national achievement, he offered the nation up to the harsh glare of the international spotlight, for better or worse. This documentary tells a tale of two countries: one a shiny democratic republic the government proudly puts on display for visiting journalists and dignitaries, the other a repressive and corrupt land with no respect for freedom of expression or assembly. (From Germany, in English and Azerbaijani) (Documentary)
