Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Oleg (Oleg Basilashvili) is in for a really strange time, that much is clear. Of course, just the fact of his desire to visit a gypsy fortuneteller in the first place is an indication of that. He's well past middle age, in his 50s, and is an established, well-known writer. When the fortuneteller told him the same thing (you will have an unusual time), he didn't really believe her. However, when he runs into a 25-year old man in his apartment claiming the same parentage, profession, name and birthday - as well as having a scar over his eye identical to the one older Oleg has, it seems like the prediction has already come true - but it is just beginning. Oleg the younger (Andrei Sokolov) says he's leaving for Israel in the morning, but between then and now, he's at Oleg the older's disposal. For some reason, the presence of this near-doppelganger lends the older man courage and recklessness unlike anything he ever had before, and as he sets things right and gets revenge for previous slights, strange adventures abound.
