1. Plot

At a meeting of the Communist Party committee of a construction trust Russian: строительного треста, one of the supervisors, Potapov, makes a surprise announcement. He and his team refuse to receive the bonus money issued for overfulfillment of plan targets. According to Potapov, the management of the trust regularly artificially lowers targets so that the trust can easily exceed its targets. Potapov proves his words with compelling economic data.

The director of the trust, Batarcev, dismisses his allegations. He tries to disparage Potapov as a "troublemaker" and attempts to cover up the scandal. However, the Party Secretary unexpectedly supports Potapovs initiative.
