Plot synopsis
It is impossible to hide from inquisitive looks and gossips in a small provincial town. How¬ever, paper-mill worker, Young Communist Leaguer Katya and Andrei are not hiding their love. All of a sudden Katya’s radiant hopes break to pieces: Andrei is indignant to hear the news that Katya is expecting a baby. He does not want “to change diapers”, this “trivial life” will interfere with his plans to “build bright future”.
