Mushrooming (2012)

Original title: Seenelkäik

Feature film | Comedy Duration 93:00

Politician Aadu Kägu and his wife Viivi go to pick mushrooms in order to take a break from reputation campaign. They will be accompanied by Zäk - a hitchhiking penniless rock star. To avoid public mushroom forests, they haphazardly go to some remote deep woods that looks wild and deserted. Soon the three of them find out that they are lost. At the same time, a media scandal explodes - investigative journalists suspect that Kägu has misused public funds. Both in the woods and in town a battle of life and death begins.
