Plot summary[edit]

The characters played by Yuri Nikulin, Grigory Vitsin and Evgeny Morgunov make moonshine alcohol in a hut hid in a forest. At work they sing about their moonshine still. Their dog takes a piece of it (a coiled condenser) and runs away. The trio has to chaise the dog, and they go on skis. In the end all of them run to the police department, where the bootleggers are arrested.
