"For the first time in Russian film history the setting is industrial: a peat-extraction site, a power plant, workshops, etc. There is a quasi-detective plot. The young and gifted engineer Prite is working on a new system of power supply. The workers support Prite, for his project will improve their working conditions. Rival companies are trying to steal the invention. A struggle ensues. After living through many perils, depicted in the manner of American adventure films, Prite wins."--Evgeni Gromov
