Plot synopsis
A surreal story about a village guy, who struggles with the vicissitudes of rural life. With a super-human patience and purposefulness, he undergoes tests by fire, water, and copper pipes. Neither physical work in the fresh air, nor the absence of basic comfort or the encounter with stern, northern animals can break his will. When he achieves success and receives an award for his tortures, he appears in a slightly different light.
