My grandmother was Zoya Fyodorova and she was the most famous actress in Russia for over 50 years. In 1981, when I was 5 years old, she was brutally murdered while defecting the Soviet Union. 37 years later, I’m making a documentary and investigating her murder to bring justice to her, my family and myself.

Standing outside FSB headquarters in Red Square right before viewing my grandmother’s classified KGB file. I was also the first American to step foot inside FSB headquarters, which coincidentally was once the prison where she was held for 10 years.
