Victor Sluzhkin signs on as a teacher of geography in a secondary school
in his native Perm (in the Urals) and gets lost in a haze of hard
vodka, desperate love for a nymphet-like student and the stress of
educating teenagers. Geographer, as the students immediately dub
Sluzhkin, attempts to escape from the grueling, dull, stultifying
reality of Russia's provincial life in a rafting tour to the Urals.
Accompanied by wild, adventure-seeking adolescents, faced with the
numerous grim surprises of the nature, Geographer is poised to find
himself and his own truth.
