Kit Sorrell and son( Visual )

This film satirizes the extant defects in the economic and social structure of Bulgaria during the 60s and 70s. The plot focuses on the return of a small fishing ship which, for many months, has failed to bring home a catch. One day, it returns to the pier, having caught a single sprat. The ship's captain reports a bigger species of fish has been caught to the supervisor of the fishing base. The supervisor embellishes the report further with a description of a still larger species before personally turning it in to a regional manager. The supervisor and regional manager celebrate the glorious achievement with some cognac. In their jubilation, they don't specify the catch as a more massive kind of sea creature, so the regional manager's right-hand man, an engineer, inserts his own impression: that the catch is actually a species of whale, after which the report is transmitted to the state government. The state employees can't wait to inform the Minister, who then proposes a new name for their department: The Ministry of Whales. To celebrate the name change, ideas of having a whales festival or even a whaling flotilla are considered. All those involved go to the pier to welcome the in-bound shop. The overly festive welcome for the bewildered fisherman is the culmination of the bureaucratic farce
