2004. Somewhere deep, deep in Russia there is a town called Mars (named after Karl Marks, founder of Communism theory, but missing the letter "k"€ on the train station sign). All the residents work at the toy factory and are paid with toys. Boris, a former boxer on the run from Moscow, disrupts the rhythm of the town. The film's style shifts between absurd comedy and melodrama. 100 minutes.
