Storyline

A barrage balloon appears unexpectedly over a Bulgarian village. The startled villagers decide to knock it down with a fusillade. But the balloon flies off to the mountains. The villagers, armed to their teeth, set off after it. But they are not alone in this undertaking. There is another armed group that chases the 'wonder'. An argument whose property the balloon is breaks out between the two groups. It turns out that the balloon flew from Romania over the Danube River. In the turmoil following the argument, the balloon is destroyed. The police arrive and punish the villagers for meddling in other people's affairs.

Trivia

The character of the young girl is not present in Radichkov's story from which the film is based. This silent, barefoot, helpless character in his confused escape was an allegory of the dissenting man, a sort of earthly projection of the free-flowing balloon. Through this character, especially in the scene where she fell into a pit and is surrounded by ferocious dogs barking at her, the director had expressed her sense of persecution and despair that she was experiencing at the time.
