The Nineties. A young guy, an aspiring "Ostap Bender," dares to run a card scam in a casino and go up against the foreign managers and masters of life, the gangsters, but an encounter with a former marginalist conductor fundamentally changes the course of the story, taking the conflict to a deeper level.

In my opinion, our time and the early '90s overlap in many ways. The contrast between the dominance of brutality, the power of brute force, money, and a vanishing spirituality, is especially striking and overt in the 90s. In the film the con theme flows smoothly into the spiritual when the main character, a former conductor, appears, in complete contrast to everything that is going on. He tells his parable about four wives, the meaning of which the bandits don't understand, but something deep inside them touches and worries them because it speaks of the primacy of the material over the forgotten soul. That's what I wanted to show in the film.
