Shots Heard as General Tries to Placate Pro-Russians
Ukrainian troops, aircraft and personnel carriers were sent to positions near the eastern cities of Kramatorsk and Slovyansk on April 15. There were conflicting reports of shots being fired near Kramatorsk airfield, with at least one reporter on the scene saying he saw one person with “a bullet graze”.
WARNING: THIS TRAILER CONTAINS STRONG LANGUAGE. For Nick, Kurt and Dale, the only thing that would make the daily grind more tolerable would be to grind their intolerable bosses into dust. Quitting is not an option, so, with the benefit of a few-too-many drinks and some dubious advice from a hustling ex-con, the three friends devise a convoluted and seemingly foolproof plan to rid themselves of their respective employers…permanently.
There’s only one problem: even the best laid plans are only as foolproof as the brains behind them.
