Plot synopsis
Yuri Aliabiev (Yuri Vasilyev) is a newspaper reporter who has been working in the letter-to-the-editor department for three years. He jumps at the chance to travel to a small town in the Ural region to substantiate the letters from a vitriolic female letter-writer named Anikina (Nadezhda Fedosova). Yuri learns that Anikina is full of hot air. He meets Djura (Galina Polskikh), a pretty and opinionated country girl who is the object of Anikina's scorn, and Yuri falls in love with Djura, but she spurns his amorous advances. Later, he is assigned to Geneva and Paris, where he is befriended by the Yank writer Barton (Anatoli Krishanski). Barton educates Yuri in the finer points of capitalism before he is transferred back to Moscow. He goes back to the small town to find Djura and finds she has been ostracized by the community because of her association with him. French singer (Mireille Mathieu) and actress (Annie Girardot) make appearances in the scenes in Paris. This socially conscious drama was seen by over 27 million people in the Soviet Union alone.
