  • Synopsis
    The last hope of Russian cinema, producer and director Fyodor, wastes money on a music video for his “bros” from the 90s. Actor Sergei has had roles depicting everyone from Jesus Christ to a squirrel, but has now run out of roles, is depressed, and does not know how to live on. The number one TV presenter in the country, Ivan, jokes incessantly. Ivan's girlfriend does not understand why he makes her laugh at breakfast, in bed and even at a funeral. What doesn’t he understand? By pure chance, a poor foreigner falls into the thick of the lives of the rich and famous. It turns out that all our ideas about the life of stars are myths. In fact, everything is much worse than it seems. In trying to help the stars solve their problems, our hero falls in love with the mayor’s wife and decides to try anything to rescue her from Moscow’s Olympus.
