Young patriotic young man ends up in the on Chukotka right after the civil war, where he intends to spread ideas of justice and equality among the natives. As it happens, instead he learn the local capitalist ways, and he start profitable fur trading with US, Japanese and other merchants. In the process, he made an enormous sum of money over $ 1 million dollars. Once his outpost is attacked by the Bandits, he runs away and ends up in Alaska Border Station. In order to protect $ 1 Million USD, he travel all over the world, and ends up in Russia (with the $ 1 M intact). In Russia, the money, of course, are stolen, but eventually recovered by the brave Russian Militia. When our hero come to the local Militia station to give himself up (expecting to be shut for his negligence), he is in for a big surprise. Natually, the money are put into Soviet Treasury, and our hero is commissioned to go back to Chukotka (this time as an official representative of the Soviet State). Everybody happy.
