After a lifetime behind bars, newly paroled cellmates Markus (Kark) and Eduard (Makovetski of BURNT BY THE SUN 2) still have a few tricks up their sleeves in this gentle tragicomic caper that sparks with the masterful interaction of two veteran actors. Taking time to get their personal affairs in order, the two agree to meet up in a week. An old hand at larceny, Markus effects a no-cost makeover before pursuing a courtship, but finds that a walk down memory lane may be leading to a dead end. Sly, spry Eduard reclaims his red-hot motorcycle along with its secret stash, and scores a red-headed partner in crime at the welfare office. The surprise circumstances of their reunion change everything. In Estonian and Russian with English subtitles. Courtesy of Leo Production. DCP digital widescreen. (BS)
