Every cook should learn how to govern the state, Lenin demanded. Zarchi/Chejfic provide the cinematic version. With them, it is a milkmaid who, as a "simple woman", accomplishes the promotion to the Kolkhoz’ presidency at first and then to the Supreme Soviet. But the obstacles on her way, her shyness, her conflicts with the husband who does not want a "superior" woman, with the collective which does not accept her orders, are portrayed against the usual stereotypes with love for the character and with authenticity.
