Plot

A chemist by training, Alexandr Petrovich Bochkin (Yury Yakovlev) manages a Moscow dry-cleaning operation, but lives a very comfortable life, taking orders on the side for his speculative "private enterprise," run in conjunction with "Queen Margot" (Faina Ranevskaya). But when his old friend from the chemical institute, Yuri Lebedev (Vsevolod Safonov) arrives in Moscow from the Siberian city of Dalnegorsk, along with a traveling companion, Olga (Ninel Myshkova), Bochkin becomes uncomfortable with his job title. He decides to tell his friends that he is a scientist working on top-secret experiments for the government, but eventually this cover story backfires, leading to one misunderstanding after the other.
