Fedya is 20 years old. He loves movies, Zhenya and the small provincial 'Motherland' movie theatre that he has managed to revive. When the local authorities decide to turn 'Motherland' into a shop- ping mall, there is only one thing he can do: make a successful lm with a top celebrity and pay o the crooked o cials. No funds to pay top dollar? No worries, a rope and sleeping pills will do the job! Fedya teams up with a desperate demob producer, a wedding photographer / philosopher, and an actress / martial arts expert. Stunning Zhenya really stands out from the crowd, but Fedya can't bring himself to go further than o er her the lead role. The actors are ready, the cameraman is sober and their celebrity is already on set, putting in the performance of a lifetime which is only slightly impaired by the gag in his mouth. Lights, Camera, Action! Everything that can go wrong on a shoot will go wrong, but the bright eyes and bushy tails of the creative team and the local residents will help them to achieve what they set out to do!
