The main character of the film, yesterday's student, and now both the doctor of the district clinic and creator of the BEZ Promo promotion label, cannot choose what to associate his future with – with medicine, or with organizing parties in Moscow clubs. Both seem to him to be an important mission. Both are serving people.
