When the peasant Emelian lets a pike go free, the pike rewards him by granting him everything he wishes for. Adapted from the Russian fairy tale At the Pike's Behest.

After many amusing adventures with the Tsar, the Tsarevna and the general, Yemelya refuses the post of minister and leaves for the village with his beloved.
