I've seen this film a few times, and I was pleasantly surprised each time by Mircea Diaconu's acting. He plays a young urologist who is assigned to a town hospital with no urology ward, and who keeps bumping into his superiors because of both ethical and medical problems. For those who know the medical system in Romania, it's an acid pamphlet against destruction of young talents as well as a stand against the never-ending corruption plaguing the noblest of professions. It must have been a brave thing to film, not to mention show such a film during the early '80s. The only problem with it is that the story line is not always firm and straight (probably because of concessions the director had to make) - for example, the half-romance between the doctor and the young psychologist. All in all I advise you not to change the channel when it's shown on TV.
