The Kazakhstan horror-comedy ‘Sweetie, You Won’t Believe It’ by Yernar Nurgaliyev, tells the story of a soon-to-be father who, feeling extremely overwhelmed and incapable of being useful to his very pregnant partner, decides to go on a fishing trip with his boys  to regain his “manhood” before “it’s too late”. During said trip, the boys accidentally witness a mob murder in the forest, turning them into the mob’s next hot target.

Bask in Nurgaliyev’s first international hit ‘Sweetie, You Won’t Believe It’, a film about Kazakhstan’s gender expectations with lessons on family values, the power of true friendship and life priorities.  Join the party and dive into this wacky and “splatstickesque” universe packed with crazies, a one-eyed maniac and lots of blood and giggles.
