    • Synopsis
    • Russia in the time of Perestroika the borders are opening up and rock music is hitting the alleyways of Moscow. Its 1986 and blackmarket jeans are the quickest way to get you into the cool crowd. For Borya, the clumsiest pupil at the infamous Bolshoi theater Ballet Academy, supplying these jeans to his classmates is his ticket into popularity, along with his claim to son of Russia's most famous ballet dancer, Mikhail Baryshnikov, an idea fed to him by his mother. It is only a matter of time before these claims catch-up to Borya. In a place where decorum and conformity rule, Borya's dreams are met head on in a hilarious and heart-warming way, that takes us back to the 80s when the world was starting to rumble under the headphones of the portable walkman.
