Plot synopsis
The young and naive Artiom arrives in Moscow. His plan ? Live the dolce vita of the rich and famous. Yet the most he can really count on is working for his friends as a designated driver for the wealthy. One night, he wakes up in a hotel suite with a rich young woman who does not remember that he is only a driver. He falls in love with her and claims to be a millionaire. Yet he understands that acting like a millionaire and really being a millionaire are very different things.
