"To be or not to be" - this sacramental phrase is familiar to many. And now the moment comes when the student has to make a personal choice to be or not to be an artist. What attracts them? The profession itself or the way of life in this profession? What is an artist? The film was based on a three-month observation of applicants to the acting department of VGIK.
