Such were the stagnation times in Russia when an astrophysicist had to work in a supermarket. He falls in love with his co-worker—a girl with her feet firm on the ground. Can the stars in his mind and the earthly goals in hers lead them to any compatible relationship? And the background is the surreal of late Soviet lifestyle.
