At the film’s centre stands the story of an army Captain, who escorts a soldier-deserter to his unit. The two men spend a day in Moscow, where they clash with the realities of life in a modern megapolis: sometimes comic, sometimes tragic. The emerging friendship between the offi cer and the soldierdeserter changes the Captain’s attitude to life. The cynical Captain fi nds once again a meaning in life and faith in man.
