Plot synopsis
Small town Kandalaksha, the year 1953. The town’s fool Petya likes to pretend that he is a real militiaman serving and guarding, furthermore – that he is the real inspector of the traffic police. He has a formal baldric and militiaman’s cap, and in his real holster there is a gun – it makes no odds that it is in fact made out of wood. Nobody wants to talk him out of this harmless encroachment for the power. Even the cars of the chief constructor and the superior engineer stop at «inspector Petya» signal. He was honored with the favour and attention of the first beauty of the town, the wife of the colonel of GB Boguslavskiy, who is the chief of several local reformatory camps. And then came the fatal march of 1953. Stalin died. And a con has just escaped from the local reformatory camp. Together with alarmed soldiers and guards Petya starts out for chasing, because he just couldn’t imagine how an event like this could possibly pass without him…
