When tyrannical dictator Joseph Stalin drops dead, his parasitic cronies square off in a frantic power struggle to be the next Soviet leader. Among the contenders are the dweeby Georgy Malenkov (Tambor), the wily Nikita Khrushchev (Buscemi), and the sadistic secret police chief Lavrentiy Beria (Simon Russell Beale, Into the Woods). But as they bumble, brawl, and backstab their way to the top, just who is running the government? Rating: R16 Violence, sexual references & offensive language
