Plot synopsis
A defense propaganda film with the message «Bunglers Harm the Defense!», constructed in the form of a parable. Because of wretched boots the worker cannot deliver an important message in time during the maneuvers, and the crew of the armored train «perishes» in a mock gas attack. The main character finds himself in court in the dock, but as it transpires, the members of the tribunal are themselves guilty, because there are among them the crew members of the «lost» armored train, including shoemakers, who produced the bad boots.
