Sculptor Dyakov, an artistic recluse living in a Black Sea resort area, is besieged by sycophantic well-wishers. Isolated for years and supported by donations from local fishermen and village folk, he and his German-born wife are interrupted by a visit from an architect and an artist,

who inform him that the sculpture on which he has devoted his energies for many years has been singled out for exhibit. He will be paid a large sum of money--the price established by the Communist government--for the long-awaited work. The destitute sculptor agrees to accept the substantial sum,

but he has gnawing doubts about the sculpture, believing it to be unfinished. Following a night's celebration at which he drunkenly quarrels with his friends and neighbors, he decides to take his own life. At dawn he puts out to sea in his boat, intending to drown himself. But his discovery of the

architect's small, charming daughter as a stowaway finishes this plan. This film was a late work by Vulchanov, one of the most influential post-WW II Bulgarian directors, with his frequent collaborater, scripter Petrov. The latter is one of the most respected Eastern European writers, responsible

also for translating many of Shakespeare's works into his own tongue.
