In a small fishing town, Nino sells soap at his Sultan of Soap shop. When he received a highly confidential phone call informing him that the President of the Republic wants to visit to buy a lot of soap as part of his campaign to clean up the nation, he is not quite sure what to do… and lets the secret slip. With the cat out of the bag, the whole town gets involved in preparing for His Excellency’s visit in this sly and clever satire.
