The film belongs to the so-called 'migration group' films in Bulgarian cinema. Both thematically and by the genre it occupies an intermediary place between the dramas examining the break up of the patriarchal tradition and the satirical films about the adaptation of yesterday's villagers to the condition of urban life. The protagonist and his family have recently moved to the town, but every Sunday he gets on his bicycle and rides back to his native village. During the week he is a worker, but come Saturday and his soul is filled with a longing for the lost paradise of his countryside. It is here, in the little orchard of his father's house that he gets involved into beautiful, late love affair with a pretty chemist. But the girl remains only for a short time; her infatuation is short- lived. Will he manage to adapt his delicate inner world to the new urban life? His neighbor, also a peasant, does not feel the change at all. He is raising pigs between the blocks of flats and will not be bothered by either memories or dreams of past. We see different human characters placed in the same situation, opposite views of life arising at a given stage of socio-economic development.
