A Black Comedy telling the story of the beautiful Russian girl Irina who ends up in Switzerland. A shady lawyer introduces her to a growing clientele which includes prominent members of the business world, politics and the military. Gradually, she delves deeper and deeper into a mysterious labyrinth of interest groups behind an international financing scandal. In danger of being deported and unaware of the consequences she starts a coup planned by a forgotten political organization many years ago: the Beresina Alarm.
