When the raider began to seize business from a simple entrepreneur-lumberjack, he had no idea that his main enemy would be the lumberjack's love for the beautiful spender, which the raider himself had sent to the lumberjack to ruin him. The lumberjack dreams of building a palace in the taiga for his beloved and goes to a Finnish designer for equipment. The raider deprives the lumberjack of all his money, and the designer does not want to say goodbye to the equipment without payment. To top it off, it turns out that the lumberjack's ex-wife went to this Finn. The lumberjack does not give up. The raider puts the lumberjack in prison. But seeing the exploits of the lumberjack for love, the beautiful spender saves him. To get rid of the annoying lumberjack and problems with ex-husband of his new wife, the designer signs a fictitious contract and arranges a ceremonial farewell to the lumberjack.
IVANOVICH: A lumberjack of medium height. 30-55 years old. A former alcoholic. Shy with women. A simpleton who can be easily deceived. However persistent and with a positive character. It moves towards its goal like a rhino, sweeping away everything in its path. He says what he thinks. Wrong speech is due to living in the taiga. However, his self-confidence makes him a great speaker, whom everyone listens with with their mouths open and believes him no matter what he says. Authority among their own.
BORISYCH: Ivanych’s faithful squire. A young and cheerful lumberjack with simple thinking and speech. 20-30 years old. Shirt guy. Sometimes quick-tempered. But he listens to Ivanovich in everything.

Synopsis of the comedy film Lumberjacks.
Arthur begins a raider seizure of business from the alcoholic lumberjack Ivanovich. The habitual life of lumberjacks is falling apart, and everyone in the world is scolding Ivanovich for signing debt papers in a drunken state. From Ivanovich his wife leaves to the Finnish buyer of the forest and periodically calls to Ivanovich to make fun of him. But unexpectedly for everyone, instead of traditionally going into a binge, Ivanovich quits drinking and is looking for a way to save the business.
Arthur fears failure and, in order to finish off Ivanovich, sends a spy to him – the beauty and spender Lyuba. Ivanovich falls in love with her, but thinks that such a beauty is beyond his means.
Lyuba’s uncle wants to send Ivanitch somewhere far away from his niece and tells him a fictional story that some ingenious designer is hiding from the Nobel Prize in the forests of Finland. And he allegedly has a unique machine that will enrich lumberjacks and solve all their problems. Ivanovich immediately wants to buy this machine in order to use it to build a palace in the taiga for his beloved woman.
Ivanovich is looking for money in banks, but no one trusts the former alcoholic. A local crime boss instructs Arthur to send money to Moscow, and Arthur decides to use simpleton Ivanovich as a criminal courier. He gives him a suitcase with money at a restaurant, ostensibly as a contribution to a joint business. The waiter overhears them.
Ivanovich is happy. He and his young lumberjack Borisych travel by train through Moscow to Finland to buy equipment. Arthur and Lyuba secretly go with them and look after a suitcase with money.
A Moscow bum hired by Arthur steals a suitcase from lumberjacks and runs away with money from Arthur. Now there is no turning back for anyone. And the lumberjacks, hoping for luck, go to buy equipment without money. Arthur and Lyuba secretly follow them.
Ivanovich hires a translator and negotiates with the designer Tom in a Finnish town, trying to persuade him to sell the equipment for a pittance. The slow Finn is in no hurry and drags out the negotiations, and the Translator misleads both sides. In addition to everything, it turns out that Ivanovich’s wife went to Tom.
Arthur throws fake evidence to the Policeman that the loggers are allegedly international fraudsters, and the Policeman arrests them. But Lyuba is already in love with Ivanovich and is stealing evidence from the police. The Policeman is forced to release the lumberjacks. Arthur, in a skirmish with the Translator, discovers that this Translator is in fact a Waiter and a Bum, as well as a Mafia boss.

To get rid of annoying lumberjacks and problems with his wife, Tom signs a fictitious contract. On the occasion of the signing of the agreement, the Mayor is organizing a city holiday. The lumberjack gives a fiery anti-alcohol speech, so hot Finnish lads quickly throw lumberjacks into the car. They throw Ivanovich’s ex-wife into the same car, and Lyuba cannot go to Ivanovich through the crowd. The cortege starts moving. The Policeman and the Mayor breathe a sigh of relief, and Tom admits that this equipment is made in Russia.
