The inventor Timofeev builds a time machine in his apartment. By accident he sends Ivan Vasilevich, the superintendent of his apartment building, back into the 16th century. Forced to disguise himself the superintendent dresses up as Tsar Ivan IV. At the same time, the real Ivan the Terrible is transported into 1970s Moscow and has to deal with modern-day life. The time machine’s break down leads to myriad ridiculous situations of mistaken identities. As the police close in, the hapless Timofeev desperately tries to fix the machine so that everyone can be brought back to their proper place in time.
