Musical comedy, in which the famous comic duo Dzigan and Shumacher play two small-town "entrepreneurs" who believe they've struck oil.  The whole town hears of the event and a serious of comic misunderstandings begin.  By the time the film ends, there'll be millionaires interested in investing in the fictitious oil wells, American con men trying to rip off the duo and a well-deserved mention or two of an insane asylum.   Yet, in spite of all the chaos going on around them, the two simpletons remain relentless in finding a way to escape from their financial misery and refuse to give in to despair.

DVD-R is in Yiddish with hard-encoded English subtitles.  Approx. 64 mins. + a 1 min. contemporary newsreel.  See film sample for audio and video quality.
