Filmed in the Ukraine, Hectic Days is a comedy about the life and loves of Belokon, a tank commander in the Red Army. Having never had any time for romance, Belokon is startled to learn that Tania, a gorgeous co-ed at the Agricultural Academy, has fallen in love with him. Alas, our hero considers himself unworthy of the girl: Not only is he nearly illiterate, but his is the worst tank in the regiment. Will he be able to "smarten" up in time to qualify for Tania's hand in marriage -- and will his sudden fascination in academia compromise his ability on the battlefield? Amazingly, Hectic Days arrives at a happy ending, but only after pausing for a few propagandistic passages.
