The corrupt government officials of a provincial Russian town are thrown into a panic when word arrives that their town is to be investigated.  How will they get the government inspector to ignore the obvious corruption and make a good report back to the capital?  This classic satire from Nikolai Gogol is a hilarious look at unqualified people working to enrich themselves, and maybe not getting away with it.
