Once a year, the fair comes for one day to the usually quiet village ’Sainte-Severe-sur-Indre’: merry-go-round, lottery, brass band and a traveling cinema. Some ’friends’ persuade François, the postman, to watch a short-movie in a tent. This film is a stunt-show, covered as “The modern delivery-techniques of the US-post”. Francois takes it serious, not recognizing being teased. Next day, he reorganizes his own delivery-methods. He has not the equipment, but using only his bicycle, he makes good, funny progresses.
