Synopsis by Mark Deming
Italian comedy star Sergio Rubini is top-billed in this story about a country bumpkin making his way in the big city, Central European style. Nelu is a intellectually challenged man from a small village in Romania. He heads to the big city of Bucharest to seek his fortune when his grandfather dies, leaving his family in need of financial assistance. In time, Nelu finds a job as an assistant to an undertaker, but his slow climb up the economic ladder becomes more complicated when his father dies while visiting him in the city.
