A pedagogical parable with the feeling of the Heimatfilm: spring is coming to the small town on the Volga and with it the young teacher Nadja Kulagina who just graduated university. One of her new students is to be thrown out, but she stands up for him. It becomes difficult for her when a good student accuses her of beating her up. With an unusually high sympathy for the difficult characters, the film narrates teacher-student conflicts, which are always solved with the whole collective involved.
