    Vassily Vlassov, 21, is the youngest member of the Russian parliament and assistant of Vladimir Zhirinovsky, the "Russian Trump". Vassily is ambitious, smart, chauvinistic, nationalist and funny. He plans to become Russian President at the age of 35. There are ironically ridiculous moments in this career, that make this film a comedy, and while you laugh, you start seeing frightening perspectives. To the slick and all-Russian Rock 'n Roll of "Bravo", Vassily walks us through the epically beautiful frames of the political theatre staged in Moscow during the presidential election in 2018. He's the man to come. Beware.
