The video The t.A.T.u. project investigates the social and political significance of the Russian pop-duo t.A.T.u. The video mixes footage from concerts, interviews and back stage with the singers Lena Katina and Yulia Volkova, the former international promoter Martin Martan and others.
The t.A.T.u., Lena and Yulia, created controversy early on in their career by kissing on stage; when they on their US tour in 2003 visited the Jay Leno show on the American TV-station NBC and the singers wore t-shirts with the text “Fuck the war!” to protest against the war in Iraq, which at that time was just invaded by the US; and when the pop-duo at a Japanese TV-show could be seen wearing t-shirts addressing the disputed islands located between Russia and Japan.
