In a tiny village everybody knows each other. The elderly shepherd Vasilych devotes all his time to the cow, looking at it like a child at a sweet; the lonely Zina curses the government; some married ladies zealously eye each others’ husbands; and local inventor Vanka entertains the young lads with clever bits. One day some terrible news arrives: the television informs about the most powerful coronary emission in Earth’s history. In a day, mankind would be lost. Having recovered from the fi rst shock, the villagers fi gure out their own special way of saying goodbye to life: to make a holiday for the whole world. Tables are moved, pies baked, some people pluck up their last courage and decide on important things in their life. But the end does not come... The situation gets heated. People understand that they cannot live any more the way they have done before...
