    • Synopsis
    • Fast-paced action comedy The Dissidents takes us back to the 1980s. Three young guys flee the Soviet Union to the West, to get to live an awesome life just as they’ve seen in Miami Vice and Knight Rider. At first the Swedes welcome them as real heroes, who broke through the Iron Curtain, but soon they're regarded as just another tedious immigrants. To put food on the table, they have to do something as lame as... work! But the boys are no quitters, so they come up with new crazy plans that should guarantee success in the Western world.
