When the locals in a small Russian hamlet learn that an undercover government inspector is coming for surprise visit, an unfortunate case of mistaken identity sends the whole village spiraling into a world of panic and greed. Witty, smart and wildly satirical, this timely and spirited adaptation of Nikolai Gogol’s classic play exposes the corruption of a provincial town with biting hilarity.

Catharine and her friends are dying, but theirs is a story of survival in its most transcendent sense, as they refuse to allow the company that stole their health to kill their spirits – or endanger the lives of those who come after them. The strength and determination of women considered expendable in their day is chronicled in this moving comedy/drama.
