It is a story about eminent theatre artists of the young generation. The series begins on the day when a deserved director, after many years of being in charge of the theatre, commits a spectacular suicide. After that, a young small-town regisseur with very ambitious repertoire plans, substitutes for the deceased. However, it soon becomes apparent that the theatre’s budget makes these plans impossible. What is more, it turns out that the new director is a toy in the hands of municipal officials, who look for an excuse to shut the institution down. The struggle for theatre survival is intertwined with the artistic struggles of the actors. The series is full of intrigues and the young director feels that he is a part of a tragicomic masquerade.
