Storyline

A propaganda comedy that tells the story of the Bolshevik revolution through the eyes of an ignorant and easy-going peasant who, as a soldier, gets caught up in the proceedings. He does manage to make the Stalin and Lenin characters look like just a pair of good old boys when they laugh as he tells them he allowed a White general to escape because he was awed by the uniform.
