Moscow, 1953: when tyrannical dictator Joseph Stalin drops dead, his parasitic cronies begin a frantic power struggle to be the next Soviet leader. Among the contenders are the dweeby Georgy Malenkov (Jeffrey Tambor), the wily Nikita Khrushchev (Steve Buscemi), and the sadistic secret police chief Lavrentiy Beria. But as they bumble and backstab their way to the top, just who is running the government? Combining palace intrigue with rapid-fire farce, this audacious comedy is bitingly funny.
