Ivan has just finished school. He is smart, talented, he does not go into his pocket for a word. He just doesn't know what to do with his life. His mother tried to persuade him to go to college, but he gladly failed the exams. They are not yet called into the army. So, you have to get a job. For example, by courier to the magazine “Questions of Knowledge”. On the first working day, Ivan is taking one professor to check the article and falls in love with his daughter Katya. Maybe this passion will bring some meaning to his chaotic teenage life.
USSR, Mosfilm, 1986, 88 minutes
