The attempt to interpret life of the Russian writer Gogol paying attention to clerk's adventures in Russia, central Ukraine.

The plot is interesting, full of suspense related to mysterious and mystic murders.

The episodes of the film are related to jumps in time and links to dreams of the film's main hero.

Many humorous episodes related to Russian and Ukrainian lifestyle of the 19th century.
