"Deadpan dark comedy!" - Village Voice
10 years after leaving Tajikistan, the Moscow-based gangster Hamro is tricked into returning to his home village, where he must confront old foes, debts, his tradition bound mother and a son that he didn't know he had. After seducing a beautiful nurse and finding legitimate work, Hamro has a chance to make good.
According to Islamic folk legend, an angel on a man's left shoulder records his bad deeds and the one on his right records the good, and these will be weighed on Judgment Day. Which angel will Hamro listen to?
