In a tiny villages at the end of the world, a postman has a completely original approach to his job: He substitutes the mail he is supposed to deliver with letters he himself has written. The villagers love these missives because they make everyone laugh - from tramp to policeman, from fat lady to vicar, even the grumpy publican - his letters delight them all. But then the regional post office gets wind of the affair.
