When identical twin brothers–who couldn’t be more different–hear that their long-absent father is sick in Luxembourg, they set out from Ukraine on a journey to see him one last time. Will the man they find be the bad-ass father they remember? This humorous film is a declaration of love to the director’s father, who like the father in the film, was running away all the time, ultimately dying in a wealthy European city! The film premiered at the most recent Venice Film Festival.
