    • Synopsis
    • Riga, 1960s. Telephone assembler, self-made poet and composer Cēzars Kalniņš together with his friends plays in a band but the texts written by him seem to be immoral to the middle-aged cultural worker Anita Sondore who puts obstacles for public performance of these songs. The public committee that discusses creative work of the young song writer turns into a metaphor of an anonymous and almighty opinion whose destructive impact cannot be stopped.
