Fancy clubs, concrete-and-glass offices, sport cars, VIP parties, recreational drugs, alcohol, girls for every taste, Forbes-list celebrities, queues to bars… This is Moscow in the early 2000s. And this is Max, the protagonist, a 30-year-old top manager. Successful, smart, wealthy. The typical competitor in that endless race under the motto Enjoy Life to the Fullest, where the focus is on the journey rather than on the destination. There is no time to stop and think. Life is flashing by is too fast for that. In the nearest future, Max hopes to head the Russian branch of a major international bank. And in the meanwhile, to keep boredom at bay, he becomes a co-owner of a new nightclub, starts an affair with a model, and makes it to the top of the society column in the papers. This is the new hero of our time. The king of the hill. He is certain of that. Too certain.
