Plot synopsis
Two whiskered young people carrying canes and wearing the “winged” coats of the kind favored by Pushkin disembarked in a modern provincial city, where punks, metal fans, rockers, and other informal youth groups were playing their pranks at large. The whiskered eccentric guys were made fun of. Nobody could imagine that the queer pair would soon gain local popularity and influence...
The film was awarded the FIPRESSI Premium at the International Film Festival in San Sebastiano, Spain (1990).
