His plan is to leave for the West with his girlfriend, but decides to make a quick trip to Moscow to pick up the money he is owed. There he visits his longtime mistress, a beautiful call girl, Sasha who is in love with him. His efforts to get paid lead to ever more menacing engagements with local hoods, until he ends up committing a double murder. On the run with Sasha, he must also protect his Lithuanian lover from the long hand of the mafia. A suspenseful, lyrical and unsentimental film of great humanity.
