Using a magical can opener, two thieves, Vászka and Ványka (Maksim Sergeyev and Yevgeni Sidikhin), peel open the roof of the Bank of St. Petersburg and abscond with the czar's priceless treasure. With the Red Guard hot on their trail, the two robbers embark on a vodka-fueled adventure through Soviet Russia. This satirical fairy tale from director Péter Gothár is based on a mythical yarn passed among inmates at communist labor camps.
