A sketch show by people for people.
Big cities – no matter how big – can’t accommodate everyone. Hence, our simple motto: «stick it out on your home turf». We’ve got no reason to set foot outside our regional center. In fact, if you take a look around you'll see our town can hold its own against any metropolis. Some may look down their noses at our efforts to live the high life with our modest nights out in the local factory club or mad shopping sprees at the local mall that's been converted from an old grocery store. But it’s all a matter of perspective. Our local figureheads lead a «cosmopolitan lifestyle»: we have our very own gays, gorgeous blondes, extreme football fanatics and fitness instructors. In short, our town throbs with life, and we wanted to show this to all those who spend their days dreaming of big cities.
We were so determined, we even skipped drinking for a whole week and bought a video camera at a pawn shop. We don’t know much about making a TV show, but it’s not like major TV stations don’t churn out some real crap at times. At least ours is a real movie about real people!
Here they are – the cream of the crop of our town:
Natasha and Kirill, the wonder-couple who've lasted 3 years without sex,
Masha and Dasha, who work on the information desk,
Antokha and Filippich, the local kings of the gas station.
And then there’s Sasha, the avid soccer player for the local powerhouse club, and his diehard geriatric fans,
Styopa Pestryakov, a district cop, who is shooting a movie about his tough work on the force,
Vitaly, a gay guy aspiring to become a real man,
Fatso Max and his super-fitness instructor Sly,
Zina, the head of the local Cultural Center and Chairman of the village council,
And finally there's Nikita, who works at the appliance store, and his regular customer Irina, who’s driving him up the wall.
