A provincial factory worker becomes famous because he has 33 teeth.
An illiterate factory worker from a small provincial town in Soviet Russia becomes an overnight celebrity because he is found to have 33 teeth. His fame grows and he is summoned to Moscow. The Soviet Capital and society of the 1960s is seen through the eyes of a shocked, bumbling provincial factory worker. He discovers much about the world and himself.
Very potent combination of grotesque comedy and profound human drama in a tradition of Chekov, Gogol and Zoshenko.
