In this comedy-turned-thriller that took off-Broadway by storm, a rowdy, hot-tempered Russian family living in Brooklyn is on a quest to achieve the American dream. But things are turned a bit topsy-turvy when Uncle Boris arrives from the old country, embroiling them in his mysterious business venture and forcing them to decide just how far they're willing to go for success.
