The premise sees a trio of telepathic Russian dwarves hired by an Austrian conceptual artist – a Joseph Beuys type whose clay-encrusted visage makes him look like a reject from the Blue Man Group, and whose walls are covered with complicated-looking equations. Eagle-eyed viewers may spot among the chalkings the decidedly non-algebraic formulation C3PO over R2D2. (Strong in this one, the force is.)
The dwarfs' aim is to steal a certain something from the turbine-room of the Siberian power-station in which the artist has been imprisoned for years – and the film is essentially an 80-minute buildup to the revealing of Caballero's version of 'the great whatsit' from KISS ME DEADLY.
