The film tells the story of the regime in the maternity ward of the hospital during the day from 6.00 - 24.00. Morning, women prepare for feeding, wash breasts. The nurse brings the babies, the mothers feed the babies. Mothers express milk with a breast pump. Women paint, file nails, receive milk, read letters, newspapers (large mourning photo of Leonid Brezhnev, photo of Yuri Andropov). A man under the windows of the maternity ward. Women having dinner. Dishwasher in the kitchen. Women dreaming - scenes in a hairdresser's, shop windows, the curtain of a theatre opening. At midnight, feeding the children again.
