Synopsis

Two guys living on the outskirts of Moscow work as cash collectors. They’re young, lonely, and all they have in the world is each other. They spend their lives moving money for other people, watching cock fights and attending a poetry class at their local cultural centre. Attempts to find poetry in the prosaic world that surrounds them lead the heroes to the conclusion that the only poetic move they can make is to rob a bank.

The film won the best director award at this year’s Sochi festival.
