Daniyar is a poet at 40 passed dreaming of success and wide recognition, but in fact he stuck in a stuffy office of a small surviving newspaper. His colleagues complain that no one needs poetry in this century of high technologies and consumption.
Struggling with his creative crisis and thinking about his useless arts, all of a sudden Daniyar receives an invitation to his author’s evening in one provincial town of Kazakhstan.
He feels proud and ready to impress the connoisseurs of his poems. He even has a dream – he reads his poems on the stage, the hall is full of admirers. This trip helps him to answer his inner questions.
