A remote village has struck it rich since a mine was opened nearby. The residents have fallen prone to idleness, but the snoozefest will soon be over. When an alcoholic newcomer is persuaded to fill the vacant position of mayor, he takes the bull by the horns and starts changing the village as he sees fit.
