Petru (Mihai Pălădescu) and Constantin (Ernest Maftei), former faculty mates, have different views concerning their lives and professions; while the former has a bright imagination, is very creative and daring, the latter is looking only for personal comfort and material satisfaction. They contend for the same woman (Margareta Pogonat) – but even if she loves Petru, she marries Constantin for his material condition.
