Packed with links to film clips in various chapters and on the set photographs, Say it in Russian is the interactive screenplay/novelette romantic suspense thriller inspired by the award winning feature film, “Say it in Russian”, starring Faye Dunaway and Rade Sherbedgia. Jacqueline, a Paris society hostess (Faye Dunaway) introduces a fellow American, businessman Andrew Lamont (Steven Brand) to an enigmatic young Russian girl, Daria Larina, while he is on vacation in Europe. She is the kind of woman who will turn the eye of every man when she walks into a room. Andrew is fascinated by her, as Jacqueline knew he would be. He woos Daria with flowers and dinners. Eventually he wins her over and together they go to Moscow, where he meets Daria’s father Raf (Rade Serbedzija), a former mafia oligarch, but now Russia’s Minister of Internal Affairs.
Raf lives in a magnificent mansion with his “Russian doll” blonde girlfriend (Musetta Vander),
whom he is about to marry. He has kept the news of the wedding from his daughter and is furious that she has found out about it and shown up with this American. He wants her to go back to Paris immediately. Daria is terribly hurt, the incident having opened old wounds, believing that her father has no love for her. She doesn’t know, and he won’t tell her, that because he loves her so much he wants her as far away as possible. If she stays she will be in mortal danger and he is unable to protect her.
Raf’s past life has come back to haunt him. He is under pressure from a gang of dangerous hoodlums to secure the release from prison of their boss, and Raf’s onetime friend and colleague, Oleg Rozhin (Steven Berkoff), who is engaged in Raf in a power play for Raf’s mafia dynsasty The twist comes when the reader finally learns the real mastermind behind all the violence.
