The Cardsharp
Available on Prime Video, Tubi TV
During the peak of socialism in the 1980s, 27-year old Kostik Voloshyn dreams of escaping abroad. Not willing to "build the socialist society", Kostik lives a double life; his job as a scientist at a research institute is merely a front for his card game hustling. However, when Kostik wins a large sum from under the nose of Goga, a tough card player, he returns to Odessa to avoid reprisals.
