Athens, 2004 summer Olympic Games. 11-year- old Misha arrives from Russia to live with his mother,
Sofia. What he doesn’t know is that there is a father waiting for him there. The Greek father’s obnoxious
attempts at disciplining Misha are less than welcome. While Greece is living the Olympic dream, Misha
will get violently catapulted into the adult world, riding on the dark side of his favorite fairy tales.
