Moskow police detective Andrei Somov resigns and emigrates from Russia, but has to accept a menial job in a restaurant while his adolescent son and pregnant daughter-in-law are denied exit visa's. 'Andy' does however get to know some LAPD cops after volunteering his expertise and Russian language skills and is sent to Tijuana to fetch cheap tiles. On that Mexican journey Somov bumps into coyote Larry, another ethnic Russian but US citizen, who lost his daughter years ago and now helps illegal families enter the States. His present client, arrogant Russian Lena, haughtily presumes to know everything better but is always wrong, yet he takes pity on her daughter. Meanwhile the LAPD takes medium Michael March seriously about a mad bomber who targets pharmaceutical companies and got a bad feeling with and envelop held by Larry. It all ties in.Written by
While Larry and Kirieva are sneaking across the Mexico-U.S. border, he warns her to step only on grassy patches to keep from leaving tracks in the sand. Yet Larry himself walks on the sand rather than staying on the grass. See more »
Now I have no idea what this was about, because the writing seemed like something that was put through a blender. The acting by all concerned is atrocious. Gary Busy and Eric Roberts must have been desperate for work, and the entire production reeks from the pop gun audio effects to the unbelievably boring desert car chases. There might be no plot synopsis, because there essentially is NO PLOT. Beware that the acting by both Eric Roberts and Gary Busy is terrible, and they are speaking English. To add to the confusion, a good portion of this mess is in subtitles. You have been warned. Avoid at all costs. This is one of the worst movies I have ever reviewed. - MERK
