(Nizhy Novgorod, 2019, Russia, 106 Minutes)
In the luxuriously apportioned St Petersburg apartment of Gaga, a former drug lord, four strangers meet. The man of the house is running late, and there is nothing left for the four to do but sit and talk. One has come to ask Gaga for money, another for a weapon, the third for blackmail, and the fourth to kill the third. One word leads to another and what first starts out as a harmless conversation between the waiting strangers becomes a series of taunts and insults at the expense of the weakest of them. This escalates into what threatens to be a bloody massacre and then… mystical encounters with the Inevitable.
