A wild satire of media-driven post-Soviet politics.

On the eve of a scheduled appearance on an idiotic game show, and bothered by a reporter inquiring into his travel expenses, Estonian MP Aadu goes with his wife to pick mushrooms in the countryside. What starts out as a bucolic day trip turns into a comic nightmare as Aadu and his wife give a lift to a stranded rock star, then proceed to get lost in the woods, where they encounter some of their society’s stranger outcasts.
