Plot synopsis
The adopted daughter of Doctor Skvortsov, having learned that her mother is alive, goes to her country on vacation. She discovers a milieu of humble people of whom she knew nothing. The mother does not know how to attract her daughter to her and suffers in silence and with great dignity from her daughter's apparent indifference. Meetings in the collective farm with interesting people force Tania to reflect and learn new experiences. She even declares her love to the director of the collective farm, Sergei Ivanovich, a good and delicate man, who, moreover, makes her understand that it is only a youthful passion. When she leaves, she knows she will come back after finishing her studies.
