Waves of the Black Sea are crashing against the pier, sun is shining and the sky is blue. "Dixieland" children's orchestra is playing a march. Their master is listening. Seems that the happiness will last forever. But growing up is inevitable. Suddenly it turns out that the teacher is mortal, and your friend has their own plans for life. Medals and orchestral instruments are glittering in the sun, but every child has their personal destiny - with music or without it.
