Variety

What happens when a young man from Russia winds up on the Jersey shore? Hilarity and a dash of wackiness. When Yuri (Alexander Vorobyev) gets a summer job at a New Jersey variety store with the icy Violet (Elisha Jachetti), he thinks it's shaping up to be a great summer. But when a rival shop threatens to move in on their territory, Yuri and Violet realize there’s only room for one variety store on the boardwalk. Will Yuri and Violet work together to save the store? Will he win the heart of his American dream girl, Melanie (Alayjah Watson)? The season at the Jersey shore only lasts so long!
