Year after year the “typical” Russian farmer and enthusiastic patriot Francois Tulikunkiko tries to make a living and raises the question: Why do people in the Russian countryside live poorly although the country is rich? It is a story about the irony of life in the Russian province far from the busy cities. Francois is a dreamer with great plans, who encounters obstacles everywhere he goes.
