Synopsis

"The Cold War has divided the family of Andrei, a free-spirited Soviet teenager, between his Western-minded, eccentric mother, who reads the future on coffee grounds and worships Donna Summer, and the conservative, patriarchal father who watches World War II movies, makes home-made alcohol and sticks to traditional Russian values. After being punished for questing Karl Marx in school, the rebellious teen is confined to his room where he listens to American radio under the watchful eye of Lenin's portrait, waiting for the Berlin Wall to come down.

20 years later, in the fall of 2008, Andrei is a successful businessman in Los Angeles who faces the sudden news of the stock market crash, the beginning of the Great Recession and the near bankruptcy of his business. He is forced to lay off most of his staff, sell his house and move to the East Coast to look for work and live with his family that followed him to the United States. Andrei takes another look at his life, his values, family and the world he left behind when he came to the West to pursue his dreams.
