A daredevil pilot trainee, his brave classmate and her incorruptible flight instructor: the intertwining of action and love drama with tight pointed dialogues makes Rajzman's film a Soviet predecessor of TOP GUN. At the same time, it is a document of the brief, optimistic atmosphere between the horrors of the forced collectivization of the early 1930s and terrors of Stalin, which are still to come. The realized dream of flying is like a substitute for the faith in the success of the revolution.
