Eesti keelesIn English


It is a parody of a classical action film. The sequense of events is launched by a huge cabbage head growing on a plot land that belongs to a poor peasant estonian woman. This super-cabbage attracts adventures from America, China and Soviet Russia. Against a backround of chasing and hunting two young people find their love.
