What was it like, growing up behind the Iron Curtain, in the Soviet Union? Were the Soviet kids raised in drawers, force-fed borscht and forbidden smiling? Yes, that’s almost how it was. But there was one special boy who learned his grandpa’s magic and developed an antidote to communist propaganda. In this show, award-winning storyteller and a former Soviet boy Sufian Zhemukhov will share heart-warming, delightful childhood stories about how he played with his baby buffalo, memorized foreign books and tried to solve dark mysteries of the Cold War.
