Coming from the Turkmen Republic and set in 1961 when the country was part of the Soviet Union, this fascinating film is a combination sex comedy with elements of local mythology added for spice. The story centers on a lonely young man who finds himself terribly aroused while watching an erotic Italian film in the local cinema. He is daydreaming about the voluptuous leading lady when he bumps into a beautiful gypsy woman who offers to meet the youth in the woods if he can come up with enough money. He manages to con his father out of the necessary funds and eagerly sets off for his appointment. Unfortuantely it is a trick and the woman's burly husband is there instead. In the midst of the main story, mythic creatures and figures appear.
