The Russian president decides to go on vacation. To do this, he changes his appearance with the
help of prosthetics and make-up, but the hapless artist takes the cover image of the first magazine
he sees laying around, and now the President looks exactly like the narcissistic marginal Valera
who's hiding from the collectors. Ironically, the FSO's vigilant employees put surveillance on the

fellow traveler Zina, Valera gladly enjoys the presidential service, simultaneously voicing opinions
on foreign and domestic policy issues ...
