In 1984 Soviet Union, Boris, a Russian-Jewish stand-up comedian, is tormented not
only by external oppression and censorship but also by his own insecurities (that poison
all his relationships). Fame, combined with lack of personal freedom, is driving him
crazy. Once the leaders who dictate what he can and can’t joke about summon him to
their villa, the comedian snaps. Armed with the exotic American notion of “insult
humor”, he takes his revenge.
