Russian film producer Fyodor Popov makes his directorial debut with the tense psychological drama Kavkazskaya Rulyetka (Caucasian Roulette). Set on a train, the story involves two travelers on opposing sides of the war-torn country: Anna (Tatyana Meshcherkina) is an assassin on the side of the Chechen rebels and Maria (Nina Usatova) is the mother of a captured Federation soldier. In order to get her own son back, Maria plots to capture Anna's infant son with hopes of making a trade-off. Meanwhile, Kolya (Anatoly Goryachev) is a sleazy war profiteer with no political alliance but his own. Caucasian Roulette was shown at the 2003 Karlovy Vary Film Festival.
