Jump (for my love)

After finally being reunited with his mother, 16-year-old orphan Denis will do anything for her, something she is more than  ready to exploit. Denis suffers from congenital insensitivity to pain, which makes him the perfect partner for her gang of criminals who make a living out of arranging car accidents before blackmailing the poor drivers. Both a smart thriller and a modern fable set in Putin's Russia, JUMPMAN is a clever allegory for an inhumane Russian society haunted by the twin spectres of corruption and authoritarianism.
