Kamal is twenty and comes to the pulsatingTadjikistan capital. Here, he hopes to rid himself of his impotence. He soon meets beautiful Vera who looks as though she could be of help in this department. But Vera is married to the mob and soon, becoming a man takes on a completely different meaning for Kamal. Life is hard, says the director. And that's why this film rings true.
