The Russian Job

  • Czech Republic
Audio Tracks 

An automobile factory that was once the biggest and best of its kind in the former Soviet Union has turned into a financial nightmare. A Swedish manager with a lifetime of experience is expected to return it to prosperity in a big way. They meet in the city of Tolyatti, deep in the heart of Russia. And neither is willing to give in.

The Russian Job is a story of great plans and even greater absurdity told in beautifully crafted images.
