Plot synopsis
Black comedy.
The tempestous 90s. Jeff, a DJ at a small radio station, is accidently drawn into a series of idiotic and dangerous events...
A body in the trunk of a car and a mysterious hospital nurse, a crazy car thief, glamorous hoodlums and tht resurrected drug dealer. It all could become subject matter for a classic Russian noir if it were not so funny.
The only film script by the film critic Sergei Dobrotvorsky, who died early.
