Plot synopsis
Otar and Niko, two young engineers, work in a vineyard. The former is a careerist, the latter determined to do an honest day’s work that will reduce the impressive quotas achieved by the agricultural collective, for which fulfilling the plan is more important than quality. Deliberately erroneous reports regarding the state of the vineyards, a works inspection, Komsomol songs – the absurdity of everyday Soviet life stand in contrast to the ordered world of ancient traditions, the impressionistic studies of urban space. The film is embedded in a prologue – the ritual of the grape-harvest and thanksgiving.
