Meet Misha Vainberg - aka Snack Daddy - a 325-pound disaster of a human being - son of the 1 -238th-richest man in Russia and proud holder of a degree in multicultural studies from Accidental College - USA. Misha is an American impounded in a Russians body and the only place he feels at home is New York; he just wants to live in the South Bronx with his Latina girlfriend - but after his gangster father murders an Oklahoma businessman in Russia - all hopes of a U.S. visa are lost. Salvation lies in the tiny - oil-rich nation of Absurdistan (a fictional former Soviet republic) - where a crooked consular officer will sell Misha a Belgian passport. But after a civil war breaks out between two competing ethnic groups and a local warlord installs hapless Misha as minister of multicultural affairs - our hero soon finds himself covered in oil - fighting for his life - falling in love - and trying to figure out if a normal life is still possible in the twenty-first century....
