On a hot summer day three boys are splashing around the river. One of them gets his hand caught in the stone masonry of a railway bridge. Many peasants, the passengers from the train, which stops nearby, and the crews of tanks taking part in a military exercise flock to the scene of accident. People drop out whatever they are doing; even the maneuvers get stopped to come to the help of a child. Action must be taken quickly because the water level is rising fast. The concerted efforts of all involved people help save the child. Thus a particular case, an extreme situation has served as a test of significant and insignificant in our life, which often happens to become transposed.Written by

The image of nature and the warmth of human relationships are interpreted with a great poetic intensity
The film belongs to the period of the Bulgarian cinema during the late fifties and the early sixties who has renovate it and known as 'the poetic wave' mainly associated with the films on subjects from the anti-fascist resistance. Though 'Hot Noon' possesses some of distinguishing features of this wave, it deals with a contemporary theme: the theme of human solidarity.
This is a screenwriter's debut of outstanding Bulgarian writer Yordan Radichkov and the first feature film directed by Zako Heskiya in which the image of nature and the warmth of human relationships are interpreted with a great poetic intensity.
