On the night of February 2, 2020, a roof collapsed in the building in Novosibirsk where a Walter Garage Party was being held. Five persons ended up under the rubble, one of them died. The building belonged to the local federal facility of housing and public utilities and was rented by the organisers of the party, Danila Odintsov and Anton Shmatov, for the night of the party. A technical expertise found that the roof had collapsed under the pressure of snow, the amount of which exceeded the acceptable level. While, according to federal regulations, the roof snow removal falls under the responsibility of the owner of the building, a criminal case was opened against Shmatov and Odintsov who rented it for one night. In March 2021, they were charged. They face up to six years in prison. The Walter documentary tells the story of the cultural events organized by Anton and Danila and puts forward the question of validity of the case against them.
