World War II is raging on the Eastern front but the soldier Nikanor is sent to Siberia: not as a prisoner, but as a leader of a motley group of entertainers who travel from village to village giving agitprop concerts to the locals – deported people from all over the USSR. They perform little sketches and play films. Still, Big Brother is watching and when the entertainers encounter a strange man in the woods there is trouble brewing. One of the performers falls in love with the mysterious backwoodsman, but he is under strict supervision, too.
