It is the story of a young teacher - Tatyana Levchenko and a promising steelmaker - Sasha Savchenko became a famous saga about an industrial city, a powerful metallurgical complex and the history of a very romantic love of the post-war period.

They reflected the whole era of the development of the industrial giant, the restoration of post-war time and the atmosphere of peaceful Soviet society.
