Plot synopsis
Oktyabrina - a Young Communist Leager and a housemanager - has mechanized her household. She gives instructions to her staff over the radio, the yardman is riding around the premises on a motorbike. She moves one of the tenants, the “nepman” who pretends to be unemployed and does not pay the rent, to the roof of the building. Feeling very depressed the “nepman” opens a bottle of beer. Coolidge Poincare gets out of the bottle. They decide to get hold of the Gosbank cash box, but Oktyabrina finds out about their plan and begins her struggle with the malefactors. With the help of Young Communist Leagers and modern technology Oktyabrina wins the battle.
