This imaginative, well-photographed tale is really a series of Russian folk legends strung together by overlapping characters. The first vignette has to do with the marriage of a country bumpkin to a peasant woman. His ignorance about what it means to consummate a marriage causes the frustrated woman to lock him out of the house, so he hits the road. In his travels, he befriends a resourceful soldier and the two of them come across an inventor whose burning desire is to create a machine that will fly. Unfortunately, his attempts ground him in more ways than one as one unique adventure succeeds another.
