In Development

Jimmy

Feature Film

There was a man in the land of the USSR his name was Murat. He was without sin and upright, fearing God and turning away from evil. He was a real musical prodigy, so they called him Jimmy, just like his idol from the Bollywood hit THE DISCO DANCER. But the times of big trials came. Murat lost his country and his brother, who left to work in now far lands of Russia.
He sets on a journey to find his brother in the Moscow underworld of migrant workers. Life is like Bollywood – equipped with nothing but uncanny falchetto and a mental bucket Murat sings his way to fame in Russia.
