Plot synopsis
"Life is always concrete!" Anatoly Kanashchenkov, hero of this film, has been proving all his life. No matter what it is, whether it's development of top-notch plane radars, or building apartments for his employees, or creating the biggest military corporation, or growing roses in his garden - he brings any business to a concrete result.
Anatoly Kanashchenkov combines talent of a scientist-designer and a manager-economist. In his youth he studied at the Moscow circus college, his teacher was the famous clown Karandash. He acquired skills to find a proper approach to any person and be convincing working as CEO at an aircraft radar manufacturing corporation. Whether it was socialist time, perestroika or the post Soviet Russia Kanashchenkov has always been a winner in most difficult situations. In our time though, in order to leave an unfair game with dignity he had to lose it. But is it really a loss?..
