A wealthy rais (a head of local administration in Tadzhikistan) builds his toilet right next to the house of a teacher in the village. "The aromas" of the toilet disturb the life of the teacher’s family; it is very upsetting for them. But the rais is also a new Tadzhik ("new money") and ignores the complaints. Moreover, every time he visits the toilet, he shamelessly stares at the teacher’s young wife over the fence. However, the power of the rais is so great that nobody dares to oppose him. The teacher buys cheaply a home right in front of the rais’s house from an old man and decides to build a public toilet there.
