Loosely based on novels by Sholom Aleichem, Alexander Kuprin, Isaak babel Motl Rabinovich started his own business — opened a dairy store. A womanizer, a drunkard and a hard worker he was nor worse and was not better then his neighbors, the only difference was in the shape of his nose and color of his curly hair. All the village came to Motl celebrate opening of his store. The villagers were having a great time and no one could suspect that there was trouble ahead.
