The Russian oligarch Igor wants to put up a building at Schwedenbrücke. But first, a few city councilors have to be bribed and the redevelopment of the Danube Canal promoted. At the same time, the interpreter Nadja and the sketchy character Klaus have their eyes on Igor’s money. The Austro- Russian director Elena Tikhonova plays with stereotypes and takes male megalomania to task in the star-studded culture-clash gangster comedy.
