An unexpected encounter between three strangers in a Moscow bar prompts outlandish tales of their prominent careers -- far removed from the mundane day-to-day routine. Once they depart the late-night session of spinning stories, each of them return to their harsh realities in a dark and industrial Russian landscape. Ilya Khrzhanovsky's controversial film explores existential ideas about repetition with a surreal and disturbing cinematic eye.
