Could you be sitting on a fortune?

Soviet Russia, 1927. Ippolit Vorobyaninov, a one-time nobleman turned lowly bureaucrat, teams up with con man Ostap Bender in search of a trove of priceless jewels spirited away during the Russian Revolution…in one of twelve identical dining-room chairs! Their quest to discover the fate of the chairs and recover the loot will propel the unlikely duo into a series of bizarre misadventures, from the streets of Moscow to the peaks of the Caucasus Mountains, and into the path of every echelon of Soviet society. Against such steep odds, can Ippolit and Ostap possibly triumph?
