    • Synopsis
    • An international company orders a report by an independent consultant. A clerk in the company discovers with surprise that the consultant has strange hobbies - Old Turkic runes and archery using a Mongolian bow. Despite dyslexia (like Einstein), the consultant’s life in full swing sharply contrasts with the boring existence of office plankton. Even the clerk’s girlfriend, on becoming acquainted with the consultant, falls in love with him. The consultant’s report evokes the company’s bosses’ enthusiasm while the clerk loses respect and is enmeshed in financial difficulties. He becomes depressed, almost turning into a zombie. But the consultant helps the clerk by arranging his meeting with a business celebrity in New York. This awakens the clerk, giving him a start toward real freedom.
