Czechs are not the only people passionate about mushroom picking. Estonians also love this popular pastime. Aadu, a high-ranking Estonian politician, is under pressure from journalists who are investigating an old political scandal. He escapes the mounting onslaught by fleeing into the forest with his wife to pick mushrooms. Along the way they are joined by a rock star named Zäk, and together they set off into the woods, unaware that picking mushrooms can sometimes be a very dangerous activity. This absurd black comedy is about mushrooms, the deep forest, and sweeping political messes under the carpet.
