The film is based on a true story from the life of the great Bulgarian surgeon Dr Ivan Rumenov. It is set in the first months of 1945, in a seaside town from where the doctor is banished for the sole reason that he had worked as assistant to the renowned Professor Alexander Stanishev, who was convicted and executed by the so-called “People’s Court”. When leaving Sofia, he not only had to give up his brilliant career, but also leave behind the woman he loved. In the small town, the doctor meets Dikran, a pleasant young Armenian photographer. The two become good friends and the doctor is a welcome guest at the home of the Armenian and his nurturing mother. Gradually, Dr. Rumenov wins the hearts of his new fellow townsmen, and a number of alluring pleasures are in store for his friend...
