This film showcases Soviet science in the story of Andrei, a Russian scientist at the forefront of jet airplane and rocket development in his country. Andrei was responsible for the development of rockets used against Nazi tanks and worked on the development of the Soviet atom bomb. His dedication to his work is such that his treasured personal relationships, even with the mother of his child, are sacrificed to it.
