It's a very, very tough watch. Joining Ally for this harrowing experience is London-based singer-songwriter and poet Sasha Ilyukevich. You can find out more about him and his band The Highly Skilled Migrants here: SPOILERS from about 49 minutes in until the end. Come and See stars Aleksei Kravchenko and Olga Mironova.
