Moscow, 1953. Stalin calls in Khrushchev.

“Niki, I’m dying. Don’t have much to leave you. Just three envelopes. Open them, one at a time, when you get into big trouble.”

A few years later, first crisis. Khrushchev opens envelope 1: “Blame it on me. Uncle Joe.”

A few years later, a really big crisis. Opens envelope 2: “Blame it on me. Again.”

Third crisis. Opens envelope 3: “Prepare three envelopes.”
