Cowardly scholar Boris Grushenko has the hots for the beautiful Sonja, but cold feet for the Napoleonic Wars. Devastated by news of Sonja's plans to wed a foul-smelling herring merchant, Boris enlists in the army, only to return a penniless hero. Finally agreeing to marry him, Sonja settles down with poor Boris, to a rich life of philosophy, celibacy and meals of snow. But when the French troops invade Russia and Sonja hatches a zany scheme to assassinate Napoleon, Boris learns that God is an underachiever, there are no girls in the afterlife, and the angel of death can't be trusted.
