Plot

Head of a small railway station Yakov Ivanovich Golovach is obsessed with reading historical novels about knights. Fancying himself as the hero of one book – Don Diego, he loves to fight with an imaginary opponent. He is caught in the act by the female residents of the surrounding villages who came to the station of the arriving mail train in order to sell their simple culinary creations

Laughter of the peasant women drives Yakov Ivanovich furious. In a rage he orders to detain violators of the railway rules who are crossing the railway line. But he only manages to catch the dawdling old woman Pelageya Diomina...
