Synopsis

A black-and-white film about enthusiastic amateurs who escape their trying existence through their love of music and singing. A group of Moscow pensioners eagerty try their hand at opera at the local Cultural Hall. Later these older ladies and gentlemen go on tour around the countryside. Middle-aged villagers regularly meet to enjoy the beauty of folk songs. Young men with rather mundane jobs have taken a liking to brass band music and play at funerals.
