Plot synopsis
A famous operetta actress Zoya Strelnikova, evacuated with her theatre to a remote Siberian town, believes that the profession of an actress is out of place in the severe war days and begins working as a nurse at a hospital. Her meetings with wounded soldiers, who enjoy listening to Strelnikova’s record, which they keep with the greatest possible care, make her realize the real place of the actress in the hard war times. She returns to the theatre and participates in concerts arranged for soldiers at the front.
