Tolya Sidorov is a run-of-the-mill factory worker in provincial Russia, counting down the days until he can take his pension. But his world is turned upside down when he discovers he possesses a hidden – and highly unorthodox – artistic talent. As his “creations” go viral, Tolya must fight to maintain his anonymity as the circus of the contemporary art world descends on small-town Russia. A broad but good-natured satire of provincial life, artistic pretensions, and internet trends from director-writer Mikhail Kukushkin.
