Plot: the population of Brescello is in a state of turmoil: the council of Peppone is collecting signatures in order to make a twinning with a Russian town. Despite a hunger strike of don Camillo, to protest against this initiative, some people leave from the town. Of course the priest cannot be absent, and so, cast-off the soutane, he takes the plane pretending to be a motivated companion.

In Russia, the two usual friends live a lot of adventures and mishaps, and don Camillo, always with his Christ Crucified kept well hidden, manages to demythologise a lot of the expectations concerning the “paradise of proletarians”, dreamt of by the companions before leaving.
When they come back home don Camillo is invited by the bishop to leave for the United States; will Peppone be able to take his revenge?
