    Drama

    GREAT POETRY is about two guys who live on the outskirts of Moscow and work as cash collectors. They’re young and all they have in the world is each other. They spend their lives moving money for other people. Dreaming, they attend a poetry class and watch cock fights at a dorm for migrant workers. Attempts to find poetry in the prosaic world lead the heroes to the conclusion that the only poetic move they can make is to rob a bank.
