On his way to Sofia to catch a plane for a conference in Vienna, engineer Andonov is forced to make a detour near an archaeological dig. There he sees Kokanova, an old flame, and he gives her a ride. In flashback, they meet as students, have an intense but brief affair, then part, each

trying to do something for humanity. Now they are both married to others, but Andonov offers to leave everything if she will come with him. She refuses and leaves the airport, and he boards his plane. Interesting character drama has nice performances by its principals, though it does bog down in
