Synopsis by Dan Pavlides
A former boxer earns his living working a series of odd jobs. His main employer is a woman who sells meat on the black market. When he returns home from work one day, he finds that his mother has moved in with him. Later, a friend introduces him to two inept ballet dancers, one of whom kills a man during a botched robbery attempt. He leaves with one of the women, but they later encounter the male dancer when the latter tries to rob a family he believes to be wealthy. The dancer agrees to marry the daughter of the family, but he is beaten up by the fighter when he accidently shoots the girl. The boxer's mother dies and he sends her body back to Russia, her original homeland. The title is taken from the laughter of the dancer's next companions who cackle like crows when they laugh.
