Plot synopsis
The young actor Boris Olshansky after emigration from St. Petersburg to America failed to find a professional job as he could not even speak English. On the Christmas Eve in an empty supermarket, where Boris was cleaning floors and shop windows, he met his fellow countryman Savely. The new acquaintance suggested that he should play the victim of a staged car crash and get a lot of insurance money. The setting was to be the famous Broadway, any actor's dream.
Alas! The well-planned operation went wrong, and instead of a mock crash Boris managed to get involved in a real accident and become a real victim of a real American car crash.
