Trotsky (Russian: Троцкий) is a Russian biographical eight-episode television mini-series about Leon Trotsky. The series is a rare high-budget artistic representation of Trotsky in post-Soviet Russia, as his name was a taboo during most of the Soviet period.
In May 1940, on the outskirts of Mexico City, a detachment of Mexican Communists dressed as policemen attack the house of the former leader of the Russian revolution, Leon Trotsky. For a quarter of an hour they shoot at the house, but by an incredible coincidence, Trotsky and his wife survive. Having lost during the eleven years of expulsion almost all those close to him, Trotsky now understands: his eternal enemy, Stalin, will continue to pursue him until the end of his days.
