After WW II many young people arrive to Zagreb, among them a young worker Sonja Kačar. She is supposed to participate in the construction of the first generator in the Rade Končar factory. Because there aren’t enough experts and materials in Yugoslavia, the factory counts on help from fellow communist countries, Czechoslovakia and Soviet Union. However, after the Inform Bureau’s resolution this help is no longer available. Sonja experiences a great intimate disappointment because Stjepan, who she is in love with, supports Stalin…

In dealing with great topics from the Partisan war and the socialist revolution, Veljko Bulajić decided to portray the Inform Bureau’s resolution and its aftereffects. According to most critics this is an anachronistic film. In Pula it won the Golden Arena for Editing and Sound (Mladen Prebil).
