Two twenty-year-old youths are rolling joints in a small apartment in Almaty. They laugh confidentially as they disappear behind a curtain of white smoke. One of them begins to whisper a bit of poetry he has written. His friend turns on the radio. Sometime later, we find the young poet sleeping with his girlfriend. His mother indulges in moralizing, arguing that you've got to work for a living. «Living takes courage», he retorts before returning to his room to listen to an Italian aria sung by Maria Callas. This film is divided into 22 episodes depicting a summer of our hero's young life, episodes filled with friends, rendezvous, girls, alcohol, and urgent poetry.
