In 1996, Vladrushka the Soviet porn star had one more patriotic duty to perform for the newly capitalist Motherland. So many had lost so much under Boris Yeltsin's drunken, kleptocratic regime, and she made it a point to aid him in this. Accordingly, she and her longtime director Yuri Myshkin devised a plan sure to attract American and European investment in the new Russia. In a nutshell, what was promised on the poster was indeed the plan: Vladrushka offered to have incredibly detailed sex with the CEOs of a number of western companies. Obviously Yuri planned to film this, but KGB official Vladimir Putin was enraged when Yuri would not share this with him, planning only to use it for a new film. It was at this point Vladrushka and Myshkin were thrown out of Russia forever, beginning her Hollywood years which continue to this day.
