Plot synopsis
This is a story about a Russian Munchhausen who builds a wind turbine in his yard and puts his beehives on the roof because wild bees live in tree hollows. His wife sometimes argues, sometimes agrees with him, takes care of the children and the household, and claims that she lives in paradise. Sometimes she plays the piano with her eyes shut. The village around them is empty. Almost every resident left for the city or died, so our characters live as if on an island. Their children clean the sewer system, learn English and German, and grow up before our very eyes.
