    Less of a movie and more of an elevated YouTube explainer. 

    Taking place during the final years of Boris Badenov's Soviet Union, a perpetually gray-tinted hellscape where the people yearn for Coca-Cola and Levi's jeans, the central conflict is whether a good, honest businessman gets the publishing rights to a video game versus cartoonishly evil businessmen.
