A young entrant, Andrei Kalinin, passes exams to a theatrical institute. He lacks artistic acumen yet has plenty of charm. After getting to know that there are chances he won't succeed, he decides to convince a member of the committee, Elizaveta Kamenskaya, that he has to enroll exactly that very year. In a sequence of chance events, Andrey falls for her - the prominent actress he used to admire being a child. She is much older than him and lonely. After a few years of relationships, it turns out that she has cancer. Despite her incurable illness, Andrei marries Elizaveta.
