But after refusing to abandon his Jewish musicians, including his best friend Sacha, he was fired in full glory. Thirty years later, he still works at the Bolshoi, but as a cleaner. One evening, when Andrei has stayed late to polish the premise’s teacher’s desk, he comes across a fax addressed to the Director, this is an invitation by the Theatre du Chatelet inviting the Bolshoi orchestra to come and play in Paris … Suddenly, Andrei has a crazy idea: why not bring together his old musician friends, now living doing odd jobs, and take them to Paris, passing them off as the Bolshoi? The long-awaited opportunity to finally take their revenge…
