Peker Mengen wins the post of mayor in a remote town with the promise of a visit by the prime minister and making the town a province. When the people do not forget his promise, Mengen ends up persuading the prime minister to visit the town with his idiosyncratic methods. After consulting with his advisors, Peker prepares a grandiose welcome ceremony, but when the ceremony gets out of his control, the town of 5000 people suddenly ends up becoming a country, one that is at war with America.

One of the best absurd comedies ever.
8 June 2020 | by feritcakmazSee all my reviews

It is hard to belive that the rating of this film is so low. I don't understand people who scored this movie under 7. I am sure that this movie reminds them the reality that we are all in and it is hard to accept by many people. The performance of the actors and actresses is wonderful and the jokes are hilarious and genius. I really enjoyed every scene of this brilliant movie.
