Mikhail was fired for blowing a deal with the Italians and throwing an unauthorized office party that got him arrested, so he can’t believe his luck when his former boss offers him easy money and the Land Rover of his dreams for the simple job of teaching the boss’s son, teenager Sergei, how to “be a man.” Of course, Sergei’s not the Internet-obsessed recluse his father believes, and Mikhail can’t help but fall for Sergei’s beautiful secret girlfriend, Marina, himself. Mikhail finds himself lying to his boss about Sergei’s activities, lying to Marina about Sergei’s identity, and lying to Sergei about his love for Marina. To keep it all in motion, Mikhail must acquaint himself with the tall tales and half-truths spun by those around him, raising the stakes to criminal proportions… When Mikhail finds himself held hostage at gunpoint, he finally realizes he’s in way over his head.
