When We Talk About KGB captures seven heart-wrenching stories of lives interrupted, forever changed by the Soviet occupation of the Baltic states, as a handful of people open up on camera about their experiences at the hands of and within the former state security police. But when a former political prisoner, a dissident writer for the Lithuanian underground, phones up the retired KGB officer who interrogated him and they meet for coffee, will more than just their words fly? Can they navigate any lingering grief, guilt, or anger? Can they find a way to reconcile their shared past?

Itaalia režissööri Maximilien Dejoie filmi peategelased on tolle aja haritlased, kes kuulutati KGB poolt ühiskonnale ohtlikuks ning suleti aastateks. Mehed jagavad oma mälestusi ja vaateid KGB ja teisitimõtlejate vastasseisu kohta. Dejoiel on õnnestunud toimunule anda selle sõna parimas ja teadlikumas tähenduses kõrvalseisja pilk, milles on vaikust, rahu ja leppimist. See on pihtimuslik õhkkond, milles saab avaneda ja rääkida oma traagilise eluloo ka paljusid teisitimõtlejaid ülekuulanud KGB ohvitser ise.
