Life on the virgin farmlands of the Soviet Union is difficult. But Ivan Brovkin can do anything!
After serving in the Red Army, Ivan returns home, but realizes that he is not welcome back. And so, he decides to join a collective farm that is developing new agricultural land. He excels there and finds a sort of Soviet happiness that comes from hard work and service to others.
This movie is at the same time both naive and infectious. Watch to see the film that delighted Soviet movie audiences during the late 1950s.
