Основную идею автор определяет так: "...разложение устоев дореволюционного быта и индивидуальных сознаний в буржуазном, мелкобуржуазном и интеллигентском кругу". Но как у всякого большого художника, это итоговое произведение несет много духовных, эстетических, социальных наблюдений, картин. Andrej Belyj – Moskovskij chudak.
One day, mysterious fliers appear on all the doors in the neighborhood, announcing a new bingo hall, Big Time Bingo. Players are lured in by the promise of free money and big prizes. Like all the other kids, Chris and his friends Oscar and Jay are dragged along by their moms and other relatives, but Chris gets the nagging feeling that something is very off about the strange man who runs it, Mr. Big. As the nights at the bingo hall pass Chris and Oscar realize something horrible is going on. No longer are the patrons there to have fun. They now play bingo to WIN, and become extremely sore—and violent—losers when they lose. As the adults get hypnotized by the game, it’s up to Chris and his friends to stop Mr. Big before their town is driven completely crazy by greed and chaos.
