Plot synopsis
Criminal comedy. Moscow in our days. In the city centre, two thieves steal a bag with one million Euros from a car, thinking that at last they’re in luck; yet they cannot even fathom what they got themselves into. A proper hunt for this money begins. Neither petty thieves, nor the police, nor the gangsters can resist the temptation. The sum – in the form of two packs of notes of half a million each – makes different people behave in the same way. And all this started because the “millionaire” Grigori did not want to pay his taxes.
