The world championships are held him in Kokskhete the 1960s. And all these years of wishing to no end.

This horde of easily mistaken for devils: old clothes, respirators and masks, and behind – the bags of flour. And they behave appropriately: a mad rush through the streets, obsypaya flour passersby and arranging all sorts of mischief. Winners in the “flour war” does not happen. On the contrary, each tries to smear more feasible – and then, when all “hell” crowd will be washed to the sea, is an excellent opportunity to ask the vending scratch the back of a stranger / stranger.
