At the turn of the 21st century, Florian, a washed-up one-hit-wonder, finds new creative life in a pseudo-Marxist performance art group. Things soon go awry, however, when the women of the group find themselves the object of a stalker in an animal mask. An extreme form of identity politics takes hold and historical injustices, no matter how distant (even the 1240 Mongolian siege of Kiev), must be avenged. Set in a world despoiled by the excesses of consumer capitalism, Naked Defiance is the story of idealists who seek a richer engagement with life, but are repressed by the intrusion of internecine politics.
