A masterpiece of auteur animation depicting the absurdities of Estonian life during the Soviet Era.

It is the description of a very specific society depicted realistically using dramatic structure reminiscent of a feature film.But the story is told through the medium of animation - with visual jokes, metamorphoses and various styles of drawing.
